Live at Bumbershoot, Day 3: Posse

Seattle newcomers Posse have actually been around for a couple years. Although their debut self-titled album came out earlier this year, the trio, which began as a quartet, formed in 2010 before the departure of their bassist. Instead of replacing him the group continued on sans-bass, resulting in a melody heavy, guitar focused rock group who know how to write an addicting song. Their hazy blend of indie rock sounds as though it could have existed in any of the past few decades, from dreamy 60’s to fuzzed out 90s and everywhere in between.

Readying for their west coast tour, Posse closed out the Bumbershoot Music Lounge with the final performance of the weekend and as DJ Kevin Cole pointed out, there’s no better way to end than with a local band. Opening with the dreamy “2U” off their forthcoming new album, Posse gave the small audience an absolutely amazing performance, with Paul Wittmann-Todd and Sacha Maxim trading vocal duties and guitar lines. The band has only one, self-titled, self-released album, but not doubt you’re going to be hearing more from them soon.
