Ears Wide Open: Le Switch



Not only have the ranks of Silver Lake rockers Le Switch thinned, so has the viscosity of the band’s music. The band’s 2008 debut “And Now … Le Switch” roared with boozy, Dr. John-inspired rock ’n’ soul, but on the follow-up “The Rest of Me Is Space” (due Nov. 16), singer-guitarist Aaron Kyle and mates Josh Charney, Joe Napolitano and Christopher Harrison (now absent viola/trumpet player Maria DeLuca) move toward classic ’70s pop songwriting. With good results, judging from the two songs the band released today.
