Family Portrait
“Glide Pt. 1”
Playing at: Mercury Lounge
(217 E. Houston St., East Village)
Get: Tickets ($12) | Directions

The Washington, D.C.-based Underwater Peoples label has made its mark on the indie landscape by consistently putting out records from feel-good lo-fi bands such as Real Estate. Family Portrait is another rising act from that label, recently tapped for a U.S. tour with fuzz-kings Tennis. This demo recording of “Glide Pt. 1” may have an unwavering layer of noisy hiss and several coats of vocal-obscuring reverb, but its dreamy, hypnotic charm more than compensates for the song's seeming disregard for audio quality.
