Snake Oil s/t OUT TODAY
Channeling deep cut grooves and old school breaks à la Eugene Blacknell, a bit of War's psych-soul, with a twist of funk and pop, and add to that Broken Social Scene Feel Good Lost-era mood jams, you get Snake Oil, a heady instrumental rock record that might as well be taking the name of Laura Nyro's song Stoned Soul Picnic literally. The self-released LP is a mind at ease. A trip without being trippy, like watching flowers sprout, grow, and blossom through the eye of stop-motion photography. A blissed out, hypnotic, new underground groove record from the ever creative Jason Labbe and friends from New Haven bands Weigh Down and Titles. Buy it!
Record release party will be on Friday, June 17, 2011, at Cafe Nine with Atrina killing it and DJ Shaki spinning brain bursting freak jams like Erkin Koray and god knows what else. Check out the Facebook event page for more info, or Cafe Nine's site.
