The intercontinental (Swiss-American) trio known as Lapcat just released its third and most ambitious full length record to date.
‘She’s Bad’ (available here) negotiates a beautiful balance between high class, European electronica and the earth tinged songs of the Southern United States (think Howlin or RY-X). Worth noting that Chicago, a song the band chose to leak directly to Spotify pre-release, is already clocking at over 100 thousand plays, while the premiere of the album was recently picked up by Consequence of Sound. Production nerds should know that very few plug-ins and virtual instruments were used while recording this piece.
Most of ‘She’s Bad’ was played live (guitars, synths), sampled or programmed on hardware machines. This is why this record breathes and feels so warm, familiar and uninhibited, and because nothing was forced – the music just flowed.
To follow up the release, and give something to the upfront DJs, the band created a set of hypnotic, dance floor friendly edits and lift them up from the fanTastic album “She’s Bad’.
