Their sound has been described as 'ethereal country' and 'new folk rock,' but the music defies a single category. Deb Cooperman of US1 writes: ..Offering up a blend of immensely listenable alternative-country tunes, the four members of Lazlo could easily be the offspring of Neil Young, and Emmy Lou Harris, Wilco and Lucinda Williams, or Shawn Colvin and Michael Stipe... Melissa Yercov of the Trend writes: ...How would you describe music that doesn't fit into any genre? It's not quite indie rock, but close; not exactly folk, but similar in some ways. Maybe try adding some country, a Little Rock, three harmony vocals, a saxophone and steel guitar, and you might have some idea what the local band lazlo is all about...
