Download Lady’s “How Did You Know” from The Key Studio Sessions Compilation, Volume 1

Last week we released The Key Studio Sessions Volume 1, a digital compilation of 17 songs recorded by local bands who have done our weekly Key Studio Sessions. You can download the entire collection of 17 songs here. Today we highlight the song “How Did You Know” recorded by Lady, featuring lead singer Kate Foust. As John Vettese noted about the song back in mid-April when we first posted the session, “The members of Philadelphia’s Lady are music students, but you didn’t need me to tell you that. You can hear it in the band’s stylistic mixup (torch-song jazz to big-band swing), or its tricky time signature juxtapositions.” Go here to hear the entire session.
