Today, Strange Lot debut their new record ‘Gods & Clods’ via Alt Citizen. The album is out today, March 3rd, on Strange Records. The lead single “Born” has already picked up spins on KCRW. After playing a hometown release show in Phoenix on March 4th, the band will head to Austin for SXSW.
Strange Lot’s psychedelic sound channels the desert backdrop of their native Arizona. What began in the summer of 2014 as a bedroom solo project for Dominic Mena (guitar/vocals), evolved into a full band, fleshed out by Tim Lormor on drums and David Dennis on bass guitar. Last year, the band supported international acts The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Tijuana Panthers, Night Beats, and Kikagaku Moyo.
Their first full-length ‘Another Mind’ (2015) reached #73 in the CMJ TOP 200, while The Phoenix New Times named it one of the 20 Best Records of the year. “Hints of early Tame Impala and Mac DeMarco’s nonchalance, the record encapsulates a young band discovering their sound in a pressure-free environment,” praised Consequence of Sound.
Drawing upon influences from the bands affinity for Ennio Morricone soundtracks, their upcoming LP, ‘Gods & Clods,’ touches on the disappearance of middle class in this society. Recorded on an Otari 8-track tape machine, the tracks were mastered by Joe Lambert (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Washed Out).
