Introducing: The Tropical Funk Instrumentals of Little Lizard (LP Release Show Sunday!)
Local duo Little Lizard exist in a weird place. The band make tropical-influenced, lo-fi instrumental music featuring trombone, bass, synths, drum machines and samples. It’s an amalgamation of sounds and ideas that, to put it bluntly, shouldn’t work at all. Yet on their new nine-song CS Premium Vanilla, they’ve created a lo-fi universe of warm soundscapes that are funky, fun and tinged with a bubbling psychedelia. In their bio the group reference 70s soundtracks, and these songs fit that bill perfectly. Walking a fine line right up to being cheesy, the group find a way to make the sound work and create a pastoral, groove-laden collection that could both fill a dance floor and serve as headphone escapism. The band are celebrating their new cassette tonight (Sun 1/27) at the 7th Street Entry with Choral Reefr, Zen Is In, and sauna accident. More details/RSVP HERE.
