Winners of Home Grown Music Network's Best New Artist for 2012.
Brooklyn-based Les Racquet is a jazz-oriented indie rock trio touring nationally in support of their most recent EP, "Be Water My Friend", recorded at Drift Design Studios in Boston, Massachusetts. Les Racquet, made up of Kenny Murphy, Patrick Carroll, and Daniel Malone, are a trio of musicians with jazz awareness and technique, who pride themselves on writing and performing music that can peak the interest of learned musicians as well as the mainstream listener. Imagine the creativity of the Bad Plus with three part harmonies and pop sensibility. Their sound has been likened to Dr. Dog ("on crack") the Fleet Foxes ("...if someone gave them balls.") Frank Zappa and Queen.
