“An omnivorous mutant of a band.” – Isthmus, Daily Page
“ …this band is deeply odd in its bones,” – Tone Madison
“Fans of Modern Jazz, Contemporary Classical Music, Rock & Hip-Hop will become  captivated by the amazing sound of Lovely Socialite.” – High Noon Saloon

Lovely Socialite  website  |  facebook ], formerly Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps, is a Madison-based six-piece that combines the aesthetics of modern jazz with contemporary classical, driving rock, and hip hop.  Lauded for their bold and intricate compositions, the group often draws comparisons to Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention.  The band’s original music combines strict notation with moments of improvisation and maintains a healthy balance of dark and heavy rock grooves with quirky jazz obscurities.

While Lovely Socialite’s unusual mix of strings, traditional Chinese instruments, brass, and a jazz rhythm section suggest that the group might be a contemporary music ensemble, it is their use of stomp boxes, vocal processors, and other electronics that makes the group a suitable fit for any rock, hip-hop, or jazz bill.  In fact, Lovely Socialite has been privileged to share the stage with such artists as Dessa, of Minneapolis hip-hop collective Doomtree, as well as performing live on the UW Madison Terrace with Brian Ritchie of the Violent Femmes.

In October of 2015, Lovely Socialite released their second full length album.  Nearly two years in the making, “Toxic Consonance” was recorded at Blast House Studios in Madison with Landon Arkens.  “Toxic Consonance” represents an edgier and more mature version of the band than their previous endeavor, “Registers Her Delight” (2012), and features extensive production efforts mixing found sounds, vocal samples, and electronic effects into their live-style recording.

“Toxic Consonance” CD Release Updates!

Tone Madison was gracious enough to debut our new single, Humus, last week!  This 5/8 tune written by our cellist Pat Reinholz features driving rhythmic elements in combination with singing melodies.  The track opens with a distorted double bass solo by Ben Willis, and features some hardcore shredding on Gaohu (two string Cantonese bowed fiddle) by BC Grimm.  Listen to this sneak peak of the album – it sounds great, thanks to our incredible studio engineer Landon Arkens!

On Friday, 10/09 from 4-5pm Live on WSUM 91.7fm ~ Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps “Phones It In” for an interview with radio host Emili Earhart!  She’ll dig into the contents of the new album and try to pry out the inside scoop whilst premiering some of her favorite tracks off of the new album!  Tune in on-air or online!

The CDs are here and they are a pleasure to the eyes. A big Thanks goes out to our artist/designer Josh Newland – he really knocked this one out of the park.  Another special thank you to Sooper Dooper, we’re so spoiled to have a great print house/duplicator service right in our back yard.  Keep your eyes out in the coming months for a special ‘letter press’ Mrs. Phipps poster.  **We’re currently printing off limited run mirror board edition CDs, only available at live shows!

The T-shirts are here, the posters are in, it’s all coming together folks!  As the band gathers this weekend, we’ll be organizing all of the prizes to be shipped out to our Indie-GoGo supporters.  We really couldn’t have produced this album without your help, thank you so much!  Your rewards will be heading out next week!

We have a wonderful announcement: our friend and collaborator Dale Kaminski will be joining the show on Saturday! He’ll be performing live visual projections as PAKAPAKA Lightshow during the Lovely Socialite set! PAKAPAKA Lightshow always delights and adds an extra layer of narrative to some already programmatic music.  We are very excited and hope you will join us!
