The Denver-based funk and soul ensemble are releasing their ninth studio album, Death Or Devotion, on January 25th via the band’s own label.The nine-track album is a killer collection of feel good grooves. The album’s first release, “Whacha Gonna Bring,” was recently used for HeadCount’s Get Out The Vote Campaign for the mid-term elections. The song is as much a deep pocket heavy groove as it is a reminder that each and every individual has the opportunity to make their voice heard, not only by voting but by bringing positivity and joy to the table. Full track listing is below.

For almost 20 years, The Motet have been fusing boisterous badass funk and swaggering soul with a thought-provoking inventiveness to create something truly unique. Death Or Devotion earmarks an important point in the band’s own journey. Since emerging in 1998, the seven-piece band (Dave Watts [drums], Joey Porter [keys], Garrett Sayers [bass], Ryan Jalbert [guitar], Lyle Divinsky [vocals], Drew Sayers [sax] and Parris Fleming [trumpet]) have cooked up eight full-length albums and entranced countless crowds. 2016 saw them welcome Lyle behind the mic and Drew on sax. Shortly after, they kicked off what has become an annual tradition by selling out the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre for the second time. Along the way, The Motet started recording Death Or Devotion during intermittent sessions at Scanhope Sound in their native Colorado in 2017. For the first time, Lyle, Drew, and Parris (trumpet) worked on a Motet record together from start-to-finish, and each member of the band brought something different to the mix with their own unique set of musical influences and styles. This collection of new songs finds the band pushing boundaries and breaking new ground, welcoming old fans and new audiences alike – continually providing a welcome escape for listeners.

“The essence is always going to be the groove, but we wanted to expand the idea of what a funk album could be,” says vocalist Lyle Divinsky. “Of course, you want a driving backbeat. However, with the division that’s going on in this country and the world, I think it’s every artist’s responsibility to create a conversation. That conversation doesn’t have to be political either. It can be about love or an introspective journey. I think the commentary should be on what it’s like to be alive today. By drawing on funk, we create a fun, palatable musical vehicle for the message to go down. Our goal is for you to recognize we’re all dancing on the same dance floor—even though our steps may look a little different.”

Death or Devotion Full Tracklisting

1. “Highly Compatible”

2. “Whacha Gonna Bring”

3. “Joke’s On Me”

4. “Death Or Devotion”

5. “Get It Right”

6. “Kneebone”

7. “Supernova”

Lettuce has announced their 2019 appearance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre set for Saturday, June 15th. The 4th annual Rage Rocks show, the band's sixth overall time playing the legendary Colorado venue, will feature two full sets from Lettuce, one of which will be a Jerry Garcia Band cover set, along with support from TAUK and The Soul Rebels. Pre-sale tickets are available starting Tuesday, December 4th at 10am MST with the general on-sale commencing Friday, December 7th at 10am MST via Live Nation; PRESS HERE for details and to purchase.

"The scenery and feeling at this divine location in Morrison, Colorado makes Red Rocks Amphitheatre a multi-sensory experience by itself. Add in two tablespoons of Jimi Hendrix's historic performances here, a half cup of The Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia's legendary shows at the venue, and a heaping quart of the Count Basie big band's gigantic vibe and lingering presence that is emanating from the area and you have yourself one immense vortex of goodness," shares Erick "Jesus" Coomes (bass). "It is hands down one of our very favorite venues in the country and is incomparable to any other place. Long live Colorado and it's band of merry pranksters."

Adds Adam Deitch (drums), "We gonna funk up Dead Nation! "

Prior to the summer show, Lettuce - drummer Adam Deitch, guitarist Adam Smirnoff, bassist Erick "Jesus" Coomes, keyboardist and vocalist Nigel Hall, saxophonist Ryan Zoidis and trumpet player Eric Bloom - is on the road throughout the winter starting with a trio of shows in Texas (Houston Dec. 28, Dallas Dec. 29 and Austin Dec. 31) to close out 2018 and ring in the new year. Then, the band brings their psychedelic sonics, blissful grooves, jazz rhythms and hip-hop inspired beats across the country to over 20 cities during January, February and March including Boston, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Brooklyn, Cleveland, Nashville, Atlanta, Memphis, Aspen, Las Vegas, San Diego and San Francisco. Full tour routing below.

Lettuce's latest album, Witches Stew, is the sextet's contemporary jazz fusion tribute to Miles Davis. PRESS HERE to listen. Recorded live at the 2016 Catskill Chill, the album is an interpretive take on the historically experimental and lauded Bitches Brew era. In a similar vein of Thundercat, Flying Lotus and Kamasi Washington, Lettuce continues to push jazz fusion forward with this latest release, a tribute to one of the band's biggest influences. Lettuce is currently working on a new studio album.

Known for their incendiary live shows, extensive touring, die-hard fans, and massive two-decade career, Lettuce brings forth a new vitality to classic funk music. Together, the stellar group of musicians continues to earn their name as a can't-miss live act and acclaimed masters of their craft. The members of Lettuce are also highly sought after musicians in hip-hop and pop. Adam Deitch is a member of Break Science and has played with everyone from John Scofield and 50 Cent to Talib Kweli and Wyclef Jean. Erick "Jesus" Coomes is a noted producer who has worked with Kanye West and Dr. Dre and was a touring bassist for Britney Spears and The Game. Blending together their talents in a sound distinctly their own, Lettuce has garnered praise by the likes of New York Times, NPR, Billboard, Consequence of Sound, Relix, Red Bull Music and more.

Instrumental jamband Lotus surprised fans today with the release of their new album, Frames Per Second. Tracked live at Rittenhouse Soundworks in Philadelphia with cameras rolling, the all-instrumental 19-song studio album and accompanying documentary aims to showcase Lotus in a pure, raw form performing live in the studio. Instrumental jazz-funk, Norwegian space-disco and psychedelic rock are just some of the sounds that influenced the expansive audio and video project. Frames Per Second is available now digitally and as a 3-LP vinyl set with video downloads and video-on-demand options. PRESS HERE to listen.

PRESS HERE to watch a promo video for the Frames Per Second documentary.

“Frames Per Second is a different project than we've ever made before,” shares bassist/composer Jesse Miller. “I hesitate to even call it an album. I see it more as a documentary of our current composing and playing. The guiding theme was the idea that we would record live in the studio with cameras filming. But, since it is not a concert with an audience, big sound system and flashing lights, the energy is very different. It is more intimate and introspective. We set up in a big circle with the primary camera in the center of the room, putting the viewer or listener directly in the middle of the band.”

Keyboardist/composer Luke Miller adds, “We recorded Frames Per Second live in the studio so we could capture the interplay between the members of Lotus. We’ve been performing together for many years, so there is a telepathy that happens when playing live. We left room for unscripted improvisation in the compositions, and recorded fast, in just four days, so we had to rely on listening to each other and reacting in real time. Documenting the album on video was a way to give listeners an up close perspective of that process. For an instrumental album, seeing where the sounds come from and the physicality of actually manipulating the strings, keys, and sticks can be very insightful and add a layer of depth and enjoyment. And in a time where many things get digitized to death, musicians playing live in the studio can be a humanizing remedy.”

For Frames Per Second (written and produced by Jesse and Luke and available via the band’s own label), Lotus aimed to incorporate pyschedelia into the album’s sound by combining hypnotic beats with unexpected harmonic or timbral turns. Songs such as “December Sun” and “Milk & Honey” have sections that can wash over the listener like waves.  The band also put their own spin on different classic funk styles, like 70s Fusion, West Coast G-Funk, Instrumental Soul, Boogie, and 80s Electric Funk. “Gunk” came out of the G-Funk experiment, with Luke pointing out, “You can hear the influence in the synth bass and some of the percussion accents.”

Lotus: Frames Per Second

Luke also drew inspiration from the funky sounds of the Hohner clavinet. He notes, “The clavinet is a keyboard used on many 70’s records. Think ‘Superstition.’ Jesse rented his clavinet to Stevie Wonder once so it might have a little residual Wonder magic on it. I was trying to absorb some of that juice when I started writing tunes for this album based around clavinet grooves.” Full track listing for Frames Per Second can be found below.

In more exciting Lotus news, the quintet – Mike Greenfield (drums), Jesse Miller (bass, sampler), Luke Miller (guitar, keys), Mike Rempel (guitar) and Chuck Morris (percussion) – have also revealed their initial 2019 tour plans in support of the new album, featuring back-to-back shows in each city. Lotus will perform multiple nights in Philadelphia (two shows: January 25-26), Buffalo (two shows: February 8-9), Pittsburgh (two shows: February 15-16), Brooklyn (three shows: April 4-6), Washington, DC (two shows; April 19-20) and the Denver area (two shows: April 26-27), culminating with a headlining show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on April 27th featuring special guests Ghostland Observatory. Fan club tickets are available now with the general on-sale starting this Friday, December 7th or Saturday, December 8th (depending on show date); PRESS HERE for more info including ticket bundle details which include the Frames Per Second documentary with purchase through Lotus’ fan club.  Full tour routing, including remaining 2018 dates, for Lotus can be found below.

Musically, Lotus has always been difficult to define; an instrumental jamband that has favored groove-based improvisation instead of gaudy solos and noodling. Influences of classic electronic dance music, funk, post-rock and dance-rock, from the likes of Talking Heads, The Orb, Underworld, Herbie Hancock and Steve Reich, have all made their way into the Lotus sound. Over the years, their unique musical blend helped forge a new path in the jamband landscape, influencing many younger bands in the scene. Albums such as their debut studio release Nomad (2006) have become a touchstone for how to organically fuse elements of electronica with jam music, and the band continues to evolve through each tour and album bringing in new sounds and writing styles.

The first incarnation of Lotus (including Luke Miller and Mike Rempel) came together for a music showcase in 1998 at Goshen College in Indiana. In the summer of 1999, Jesse Miller joined and the band began writing and performing on a regular basis. Now approaching two decades together, Lotus has toured actively throughout the US working their way up from dingy basement clubs to world-class venues such as Red Rocks. They've become festival favorites, playing everything from Bonnaroo, Camp Bisco and Outside Lands to Ultra Music Festival and Electric Forest, building a hyper-loyal following along the way. The band also hosts their own annual SummerDance Festival in Garrettsville, Ohio, where thousands flock to join a vibrant community of Lotus fans.

Critically lauded, Indian born world musician Falu (aka Falguni Shah) has scored her first GRAMMY® nomination in Best Children’s Album for her latest album, Falu’s Bazaar – PRESS HERE to listen. Falu’s Bazaar was inspired by her desire to address her son’s fascination with their cultural values and customs, exploring Indian culture through song, and celebrating the instruments, languages, sights, and humanity of a diverse world. A true family affair, Falu’s husband plays on the record, while three generations comprise its voice with vocals performed by Falu, her mother, and her son Nishaad.  Falu’s Bazaar is a trilingual album sung in English, Hindi, and Gujarati, with lush traditional instrumentation, gorgeous production, and delicate delivery.

Soon after moving to the States from Bombay in 2000, Falu recorded and performed alongside a wide array of artists including: A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire), Yo-Yo Ma (in The Silk Road Project), Philip Glass, Ricky Martin, Wyclef Jean, her mentor Ustad Sultan Khan, Blues Traveler, and Bernie Worrell (Parliament Funkadelic). Her songs have been featured in multiple blockbuster films, including Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut A Place in Time, and her debut self-titled album was featured in Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History’s “Beyond Bollywood” exhibit as representative of the voice of Indian American trendsetting artists. Additionally, Falu was named one of the 20 most influential global Indian women by the Economic Times of India in 2015 and this year she won the Women Icons of India award in Mumbai, India.
