THE LODGER is an indie-pop outfit from Leeds led by singer-songwriter BEN SIDDALL. Apparently determined to let no moss grow beneath their feet, they will be releasing their second album, LIFE IS SWEET, on May 19 -- less than a year after their oft-blogged-about debut.
Siddall's voice is one of those oh-so-familiar things; it had me wracking what's left of my memory for appropriate precedants. THE LIGHTNING SEEDS' IAN BROUDIE? TREMBLING BLUE STARS' ROBERT WRATTEN? ________'s ________ _______? I'll leave it to you to fill in your own blanks....
