6/26 – 7/2 | Lovely Socialite “Toxic Consonance” Midwest Tour!

INDEPENDENT ALBUM RECENTLY RELEASED

“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.
