LOT LIZARD: Self-titled: LP

Self-described post-punk band from Sioux Falls, S.D. Plenty of ’90s alternative and ’80s goth rock influence here, but only the non-aggressive parts. This is a good rainy day, late-morning record to throw on while drinking your first cup of coffee and recovering from last night—not too abrasive, but not lulling you back to sleep either. –Chad Williams (Total Drag, totaldragrecords.com)
