Preview: Fort Lean at Outland Live

From the April 26, 2012 edition

Among those anointed as the next generation of advertisement-ready indie melody makers is Fort Lean, who’ll open for We Were Promised Jetpacks this Sunday at Outland. And while the widespread critical attention for this band probably stems in part from New York rock critic nepotism — drummer Sam Ubl has written for the likes of Pitchfork and The Village Voice — one spin through the Brooklyn outfit’s serene “Sunsick” is enough to discern that they’re practically dripping with merit. These guys won’t be an opening act for long.
