Lyrics Born - Real People [2LP] (Clear Transparent Vinyl, gatefold)

Twenty-two years after he was introduced to the
world with ''Send Them'' - the landmark left-field
12-inch that launched the Solesides label b/w DJ
Shadow's ''Entropy'' - Lyrics Born has made some
of the most organic, original, and adventurous
music of his entire career. While touring with Latyrx
last, he made time for an extended stay in a place
that he's long admired: America's first and last
real-deal music town, New Orleans. LB stocked up
on pads and pens, rented a cozy house three blocks
from the famous Maple Leaf Bar, and booked two
weeks' worth of sessions with Galactic guys Robert
Mercurio and Ben Ellman at their Uptown studio.
Then they let it rip.
Funk has always been a part of what Lyrics Born
does - his unique vocal swagger dishes out
melody and rhyme with equal aplomb. But never
has he evoked the idiom so directly or made an
album that feels so alive. He turned the production
over entirely (also a first) to his NOLA colleagues,
giving them space to do what they do best, and
him the freedom to write. Mercurio and Ellman
wrangled a host of talent to execute the vision:
Trombone Shorty, Ivan Neville, the Preservation
Jazz Hall Band, Corey Glover (Living Colour), Corey
Henry (Rebirth Brass Band), David Shaw (The
Revivalists), and Billy Martin. Amidst all that quirk,
soul, and raw talent, LB was reborn.
