Product Details

Summary

Modern day rulers of old school funk, the seven-piece Brooklyn-based juggernaut Lettuce drops their third studio album, Fly- a decidedly raging slab of relentless groove, hyper-charged syncopation and psychedelicized soul anthems. Having blown up stages from coast to coast in 2011, ranging from The Filmore in SF to Terminal 5 in NYC, Bear Creek Music Festival to Camp Bisco and all points in between, Lettuce entered Brooklyn recording studio The Bunker this winter with a fresh batch of road-tested material and a revitalized sound honed razor sharp by a year spent on the road. Bassist Erick "Jesus" Coomes and drummer Adam Deitch dig a pocket so deep it risks getting up in China's bizness. Guitarists Eric Krasno and Adam "Schmeeans" Smirnoff weave electrified six-string rhythms that summon the magic of The JBs' Catfish Collins/ Hearlon "Cheese" Martin dual guitar frontline. Keyboardist Neal "The Hawk" Evans doubles up the low end as he simultaneously floats the strings with jabs of Rhodes and Clavinet that would make Ali proud. Riding along in lockstep is saxophonist Ryan "Zwad" Zoidis and trumpeter Rashawn Ross punctuating the Lettuce funk with blasts of big, bold, infectious horn lines. As Fly unfolds, tracks like "Lettsanity," "Jack Flack" and "Play" prove pure dance-floor grenades, while "Ziggowatt" and "Bowler" are grittier and greasier with Memphis and New Orleans running deep in their DNA. Additional highlights include a deft reworking of War's classic "Slippin' Into Darkness" and guest vocalist NIgel Hail jumps onboard for the rousing soul rave-up "Do It LIke You Do." When the time comes for music historians to look back at the history of funk in the twenty-tens, there's no doubt they'll cite Lettuce's Fly as a cornerstone recording for its current generation of fans.
