Lamprey

Genre: Rock; Producer (group): Atlantic, Matador; Status: In Season

This Amsterdam quartet, Bettie Serveert, may have devised a new genre: coffeehouse grunge. Even when the band whips itself into a modest feedback squalor, the songs feel like a diary confessional set to music, thanks to the whispery musings of singer Carol van Dijk. If only there were a tune memorable enough on Lamprey to match ”Kid’s Allright,” the insanely grabby highlight of their ‘92 debut.B
