“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!

After 2 years of collaborating between Madison, Milwaukee & Ann Arbor ~ Lovely Socialite is finally ready to release our second CD, “Toxic Consonance”! We’ve still got our trademark odd-time signature jazz and free-improv cadenzas, however this time with a lot more distortion pedals! Come out to the release show and grab your copy: it includes wonderfully charming album art from Josh Newland, enigmatic Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps field notes by Huckleberry Grimm & masterful studio engineering by Landon Arkens. Tracking, mixing & mastering performed by Landon (aka The 7th Socialite) @ Blast House Studios.  We can’t thank him enough for his ability to bring forth the character of our live sound in the studio with such clarity. Thanks to all of our Indie GoGo supporters who pre-ordered the album, you made this possible!
