LawnChair Generals Around the Block
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Nordic Trax
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
House fans have likely already heard these tracks from the Seattle duo of Peter Christianson and Carlos Mendoza, who have been pumping out Chicago-esque sounds since 2001 from their self-made studio. This album–their first full-length, though they’ve released several EPs–collects their best work, including remixes of others, all of which has appeared elsewhere. Still, the music’s familiarity doesn’t detract from its appeal, and the men’s smooth mixing helps, too. Highlights include their warm remix of “Really Don’t Stop,” by Martin Venetjoki with Derek Conyer. Not a substitute for new work, but a reminder of the quality LCG have maintained for years (and hopefully a sign of more to come).
