LOTUS released its latest studio album, Build, yesterday on SCI FIDELITY RECORDS. Built on a foundation of beats evoking vinyl breaks, house, and big-beat, the album is a funky dance party throughout. The unmistakable sound of a tight live band is at the heart of the album.
“This album was recorded live to analog tape in studios in Philadelphia and St. Louis,” explains LUKE MILLER. “We used live drums, guitar, bass, Hammond organ, upright piano, analog synths, live percussion, and live horns from the group Rubblebucket, then peppered in electronic elements. The project was mixed through an analog process to give it a deep richness.”
To celebrate the album release Lotus put together a video for Kodiak:
