Agree with our pals at A&theA!  This is a phenomenal record!  Just when you think that Dayton’s music scene is one category or is easily pigeonholed, comes a band like Lioness which is a hard 180 degree shift in music approach, tone, and songwriting.  Lioness creates an amazing atmosphere that draws the listener into the songs.
