Seratones - Love & Algorhythms [PINK & PURPLE SPLATTER VINYL Louisiana] - New LP

Regular price $ 25.00 $ 0.00

While their last set seemed to come out of Ike & Tina and various acts from Seratones' Louisiana stomping grounds, this is not a band that stands still.  While the previous LP had an earthbound sound coming out of the 1960s, this one is heavy in the synthesizer department, and seems bound for outer space, and more connected with the 1980s.  It also seems more connected with other continents and island nations, and seems slightly more introspective, traveling to inner space as well as outer.  Of course, like the previous LP, and like most music from Louisiana, this is designed to move and groove, to move your mind and your behind.  -- winch

Love & Algorhythms is an interstellar synthesis of astral Soul, R&B, and sci-fi Funk. Working with producer Paul Butler (The Bees, Micheal Kiwanuka, Caroline Rose, Hurray for the Riff Raff), Seratones have taken the invitation to knock at the door of the cosmos. A.J. Haynes’s voice dances with soul-stirring devotion at the altar of Black Feminisms: weaving the words Toni Cade Bambara, Octavia Butler’s Xenogenesis multiverse, echoes of bell hooks, and Audre Lorde’s Power of the Erotic.

With drummer Jesse Gabriel’s machine-like precision and the transcendental touches from guitarist Travis Stewart, the album oscillates between Alice Coltrane-inspired bliss & Giorgio Moroder’s ecstatic release. Each song hovers and pulsates in the wide, dark matter—constellations guiding a journey through the subtle body, the vast fullness of the human experience and the irresistible potential of liberation.
