It wasn’t an easy mid-afternoon set for Washington, D.C. newcomers Le Loup—a delay pedal went missing, a banjo pickup emitted an annoying buzz and their set was ultimately cut short—but despite those odds, the band turned in a rollicking, impassioned set of folk-based indie pop. The band opened up their set with a few new tunes, most of which were quite a bit more guitar heavy than their previous work. Though Le Loup was originally conceived of as a vehicle for Sam Simkoff’s songs, it’s clear that the band is really starting to gel after spending a few months together on the road.
