A collaboration between singer-songwriter Kevin Sandbloom and producer/engineer Michael Morgan, this is a sonically fresh melding of blues, rock, soul, jazz, bossa and electronica straight from the foothills of Altadena, CA. Lyrically forlorn and lovesick, the songs have a dark swagger that undercuts complex emotional terrain.
The EP revisits an earlier work produced by the duo that garnered a demo deal with Virgin Records but has yet to see the light of day. On this record, Sandbloom mans the drums for the first time with an emphasis on getting the right feel underneath his guitar and vocal work. Morgan deftly creates a unique soundscape that evokes an off-world eeriness and lends a dystopian cinematic backdrop to the proceedings. Described as lush, rich and funky, we hope you enjoy this latest offering by the folks at Red Llama Music.
