The Sweatshop Gallery, 2727 North 62nd St.

Seattle-based La Luz writes effortless, hushed indie-pop played with the simple touch of a band that knows less is more. There's surf and 60s girl group influences at play in the band's sound, though the secret weapon is the organ-sounding Korg keyboard lines, which suggest...
