Five women make up the Baltimore-based outfit Lexie Mountain Boys, and together, these ladies make avant-garde tracks hint at everything from punk to pop. “Sweet Potato Sugar Tots” is off the group’s first Carpark release, Sacred Vacation, and features a strange amalgamation of rhythmic handclaps, fractured vocal harmonies, and ghostly echos, all of which is proof that one doesn’t need a huge arsenal of instruments to make compelling music.
