Fort Lean are a Brooklyn outfit on a roll. The fivesome garnered some noteworthy praise during their sprint through CMJ earlier this fall, and for good reason: Their indie rock is sleeves-rolled-up, no-nonsense jukebox fare, anchored by wild-maned frontguy Keenan Mitchell's massive, vein-popping vocals, a dead ringer for Okkervil River's Will Sheff. The clip below for "Beach Holiday," the opening cut from their self-released EP, finds Mitchell and his bandmates sweating it out behind the counter in East Williamsburg, taking orders from crabby Italian ladies on Graham Avenue. Just as a hard-working Brooklyn band should.
