Brooklyn-based indie pop group Ski Lodge were formed in 2011 by singer/songwriter Andrew Marr. Taking inspiration from classic U.K. indie pop of the mid-'80s, especially the Smiths, the band's jangling guitars and heartfelt lyrics would have sounded right then, but also fit their own era just as well. Marr hooked up with Dovecote Records for the release of a self-titled four-song EP in early September, just after Ski Lodge played their first show at the Cake Shop in New York. After a year-plus spent playing shows and recording, the band (now consisting of Marr plus Jared O'Connell, John Barinaga, and Tim McCoy) returned in April of 2013 with a new single for Dovecote called "Just to Be Like You." Apart from that song, the remainder of the band's debut album, Big Heart, was recorded alone by Marr with the help of producer Lewis Pesacov. It was released by Dovecote in the late summer of 2013. ~ Tim Sendra
