The Lawsuits were our featured artists for this week’s Key Studio Session. Highlighting tracks from their upcoming debut LP, the rootsy band recorded four songs, alternating between the upbeat, rocking numbers we know and love them for and the more reserved and beautifully arranged slower tracks that appeared on their recent Numbers EP.
