With a foundation of beats evoking vinyl breaks, house, and big-beat, Lotus has crafted an album in Build that propels through ten tracks with no wasted moments. Live drums, guitar, organ, and horns come drenched in classic analog luxuriance, but this is no retro love affair.
The unmistakable sound of a tight live band is at the heart of the music, but there is no display of virtuosity. This is the sound of a band that has spent years rocking live crowds distilled to a strong studio concentrate of body-moving beats and muscular melodies.
