Lotus is offering a free download of “Malabarista,” a b-side from the recently released album Build. The track is built around a six-bar guitar melody that evokes an expansive, bleak desert landscape. The dual guitars release into a sub-bass workout with xylophone, synths and drums forming a dense percussive foundation. Drawing influence from spaghetti western soundtracks and krautrock, “Malabarista”combines a variety of instruments and sounds to create a unique entry in the Lotus catalog.
The group is ready to head west this week after multiple sold out shows on the East Coast. As part of their biggest outing ever, upcoming shows include Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre, San Francisco’s The Fillmore and a three night run at the Boulder Theater. See below for a full list of dates.
Lotus is composed of Mike Greenfield (Drums), Jesse Miller (Bass, Sampler), Luke Miller (Guitar, Keys), Mike Rempel (Guitar) and Chuck Morris (Percussion).
