Philly quartet Left & Right have a knack for stuffing fuzzed-out guitars with just the right amount of tenacious, sugary melodies. Their third album Five Year Plan is their first for Nashville’s Infinity Cat Recordings and includes the mid-tempo, garage-infused “Low Expectations.” Crunching, ‘90s-leaning riffs lead into charging drum fills and hyped-up, pogo-stick arpeggios, withdrawing momentarily for an erratic, assailing guitar solo. Left & Right is a no-frills kind of band, channeling straightforward messages about feeling low but remembering that hey, life’s not so bad. It’s no wonder the main focus of their new video is a subject as simple as greasy, delicious pizza.

Five Year Plan is out now via Infinity Cat Recordings.
