Lotus Releases Jaw-Dropping New Album ‘Eat The Light’ [Full Stream/Review]

first_imgAs the summer months reach fevered temperatures, with festival culture in full swing, Philadelphia electro-rockers Lotus return with a new studio album Eat the Light, blessing fans with new material in the rapid fashion to which they have become accustomed. Featuring vocals on every track, the brand new jams are coursing with infectious beats and a focus on big, bright choruses. Mixing up styles and criss-crossing genres, the singing can be R&B and indie-rock, female or male, songs rock n’roll and electronic alike. With the release of Eat the Light, Lotus has clearly expanded their horizons and harnessed a new vision; sunglasses just may be in order.   Lotus saw the ‘Magic Hour’ as it’s muse; the time just after sunrise – and just before sunset.  Focusing on simple themes of the summer sunlight and the promise of possibility, set against a subtle paranoia brought on from society’s growing technological oversaturation, the new record is made from a cinematographers perch. Within the art, a listener will find heightened energetic vibrations and surrealism abound; Eat the Light lives in the Magic Hour. “I wanted Eat the Light to be a celebratory album that people could sing along to while driving down the California coast,” says Luke Miller. “This is the sound of summer that makes you want to dance and raise your hands to the sky.”Listen to the full album below, and read on for the full review.Philadelphia based singer-songwriter Mutlu Onaral is most known for collaborating with another local hero, Amos Lee. Onaral contributes vocals on two tracks, including the album opener, “Fearless.” A song about “the indestructible feeling that propels you to try something new and scary,” Lotus channels a disco  vibe, and rocks out with an orchestral arrangement atop interesting percussion. Later in the record, Mutlu rides over “When Our Nerves No Longer Twitch,” which incorporates yet another of Lotus’ many styles, awash in glitch electronics and Wurlitzer wonder, yet as advertised, brings an undeniable hook and catchy chorus. Billboard unveiled “Eats the Light”, the album’s first single, in January. The opening salvo hinted toward the stripped down, minimalist arrangements, and a clear homage to Remain In Light-era Talking Heads. Vocals were handled by Gabe Otto of Pan Astral, who had logged time singing Heads material with Lotus during their Deconstructed shows. The single and the new direction only hinted at the future.  Bubbly analog synths and driving grooves inspired by early-80s Byrne and post-disco dance culture, “Eats the Light” is more than just a dreamland, it’s a canvas of minimalist surrealism in pop art. Technologic-fueled paranoia, in a world oversaturated by bright screens that obscure art, is at the core of this document.“The main focus was to go towards things that were definitely dancey and really hooky, and as far as the arrangement kind of simplify things and go towards pretty classic song structures but definitely keeping that Lotus groove that kind of goes through all our music, no matter what styles the songs are in,” said bassist Jessie Miller.With a pulsating beat and syncopated bassline, “Move Too Fast” is a fun frolic, with Johnny Fissinger of Philly fam Damn Right taking the vocals; while “Anti Gravity” features Los Angeles’ singer Oriel Poole as a sultry songstress atop an aura of summertime romance. Equal parts rock n’roll and EDM, “I’ve Been a Fool (Toy Guns)” pile up layers of sonics in a steady dthat resolves itself mightily. Embracing a raw and unpolished touch, Jesse Miller really emotes on lead vocals, ably assisted by Otto. The duo also inform “Sleep When We Are Dead,” a tune with garage-band origins, that swells into an anthemic stadium swagger fit for rock royalty.It’s not all new faces and newer voices for Lotus on Eat the Light; “White Light Fadeaway” features Steve Yutzy-Burke, welcoming back the old friend. A veteran of seminal material like “Disappear in a Blood Red Sky” and “The Surf”, Burke’s vocals take center stage as the crew channels the Carribean with a bit of psychedelic energy, atypically big synths and bulbous percussion hover about. The more things change, the more they stay the same, and Lotus can always be counted on to reach for the sky, push the envelope, and take big chances in the name and spirit of the art. Eat the Light, despite its somewhat dramatic departures, does nothing to dispel these notions, instead the music and intention found inside the album only should embolden fans to expect such artistic leaps from this band.  B.

The Revivalists Announce Headlining Red Rocks Performance

first_imgIt’s been a long time coming for The Revivalists to headline the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. The New Orleans-based eight-piece has seen huge growth in the last couple of years, and has deservedly gained commercial success with their hit single “Wish I Knew You”. With New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Bonnaroo, and BottleRock Festival already in their summer schedule, The Revivalists have announced another check on their bucket list with their first-ever headlining performance at Red Rocks on Thursday, September 13th.While seemingly made for the beloved stage, The Revivalists have only made it to Red Rocks once in the past, when they performed with Michael Franti & Spearhead and JJ Grey & Mofro in August of 2015.

NYC’s B.B. King Blues Club & Grill Announces Closing, Final Run of Shows

first_imgToday, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill announced its final run of shows in its current Times Square location (237 W 42nd St) in New York City, after 18 years of hosting some of music and entertainment’s most revered names–including Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Etta James, Alicia Keys, The Allman Brothers, ZZ Top, Jay-Z, Bon Jovi, Mary J. Blige, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Al Green, Wilson Pickett, Bo Diddley, and B.B. King himself.According to a press statement, the decision to close its doors was “due to escalating rent”, explaining that “the historic venue and supper club is forced to close its doors with a final performance on April 29, 2018.” However, they promise, “B.B. King Blues Club is in the process of selecting a new location in Manhattan to relocate the venue.”In addition to this sad announcement, B.B. King’s announced the final schedule before they close their doors. Buddy Guy, Rick Ross, Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh + Special Guests, El Gran Combo, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, and more will all celebrate the venue’s legacy for one last time. Buddy Guy will headline the final B.B. King Blues Club show on Sunday, April 29. Check out the full schedule below, and click here to purchase tickets. Additional shows will be announced in the next few days.In a press release, Tsion Bensusan, Chief Operating Officer states,It is with an extremely heavy heart that we share the news about B.B. King Blues Club’s closing. Despite many sold out shows, the location’s rent escalated to an unsustainable level, leaving us no choice but to close our doors. Unfortunately, this has become a growing trend in New York City, with other iconic music venues and businesses falling victim to opportunistic property owners. This venue’s legacy extends much further than the stage, playing a role in Times Square’s revitalization two decades ago. It is a shame that wasn’t taken into consideration regarding its future in the area. Nevertheless, we feel extremely grateful for the overwhelming support we have received from both fans and artists over the years to create some truly historic and incredible memories in this space. We hope that we can find a new place to call home very soon so we can continue bringing live music to you all.Furthermore, all shows scheduled beyond the April 29th closing date will be moved to various venues throughout the city. The weekly Sunday Gospel Brunch featuring The Harlem Gospel Choir will give their two final performances at B.B. King’s on April 22nd and 29th. B.B. King’s is currently working with the group to find a new home for their weekly residency which will be announced shortly. Lucille’s Grill, located inside the venue, will remain open until April 29th and will feature sets by club favorites: B.B. King Blues Club All-Stars, Jon Paris, A Decade of Soul, and more.B.B.

Watch All-Star Musicians Mash Up Led Zeppelin & P-Funk During Jazz Fest

first_imgFocused on mashing up Led Zeppelin and Parliament Funkadelic tunes, Turkuaz drummer Michelangelo Carubba brought a cast of all-stars together late night on Sunday for an amazing performance at New Orleans’ Maison on Frenchmen Street. Along with his Turkuaz bandmate Shira Elias, Carubba tapped Roosevelt Collier, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, Rob Walker (The Main Squeeze), Steve Swatkins (Allen Stone), Mike “Maz” Maher (Snarky Puppy), Chris Bullock (Snarky Puppy), Elise Testone, Jessica Jones, Joanna Teters, Papa Mali, Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds), and Khris Royal for the special tribute show.The Maison was rocking ’til around 4:30 a.m. with this wild and woolly tribute to the two musically different but culturally similar bands, and fans were still begging for more after the last notes and band’s introductions had finished. With highlights like Carruba’s own thunderous take on “Moby Dick”, Collier and Taz’s back and forth throughout the show, Papa Mali’s and Eddie Roberts’ fiery respective sit-ins, and the vocal fireworks of the front four—Shira Elias, Elise Testone, Jessica Jones and Joanna Teters—throughout the night, it was hard to blame fans wanting the music to continue. Oh, and as always, Steveland Swatkins was easily the most energetic and purely happy musician that has ever stepped on a stage, and his enthusiasm was clearly contagious to his fellow players.We’ve got some video highlights from the Z-Funk tribute for you below, including the closing mash-up of “Give Up The Funk”, “Ramble On”, and “Whole Lotta Love”, that shows exactly why this show was so special.
