Hellloooo indie fanatics. Today is another great day for music. I want to bring this great guy to your attention. He has a new track out called Metamorpho bro. Jork  explores musical realms very few artists would. I mean just listen to this track and you will know what I am talking about. It will rearrange the way you think and listen to music. I love how he puts so much effort in the production of his tracks. But let us be honest here. This isn’t something that anyone who is into mainstream would really dig. It takes repeated listens until it grows on you. And when it does, expect roots and branches…and even flowers. I know I am hearing two musical ideas in this track but I just want to be sure. So I asked Jork a.k.a Lee Tobin.

According to Jork:

I wrote two melodies and two harmonies. I wanted to make the two work together, or at least change a little to fit together.

Bingo!That explains why I think I am hearing two tracks at the same time. Clever.

The Lotus Bliss

Lotus are a band playing tracks of jamtronic bliss. Glitches of post punk, 70’s funk and electronica are mixed into the project making the tracks danceable but at times just something to sway your head on. The guitars are crunchy, moaning one moment ;teasing the next . This changes your perception of electronic bands.

There is something about the music that gets to me. Maybe it reminds me of bistros or bars with cozy atmosphere and beautiful lights. Or maybe it just reminds me of the genres of music I listened to growing up. Whatever it is, the band will have something for everyone. Even if you are not an electronic music fan, the guitars will draw you in. Totally amazing.

If you feel awful, listen to Lotus. It will sure kick your week the positive way.
