TONIGHT 11/27: LAWRENCE ARABIA IN-STORE 7pm
Hey guys! Hope you're having a killer Tuesday, and if you aren't, Origami can fix that, because we've got New Zealand songwriter/producer Lawrence Arabia coming through at 7pm tonight!
Lawrence Arabia, a.k.a. James Milne, is coming to us fresh off of the release of his highly acclaimed album "The Sparrow"(Bella Union). With "The Sparrow," Milne wanted to stray away from using modern tools of music production due to their overwhelming nature, and found inspiration in: "...the mystique and aesthetic limitations of...late-sixties and early-seventies records where there was so much space in the arrangements and [where] you can really luxuriate in the sounds of individual instruments.” With tracks like "The Listening Times" and "Bicycle Racing," you really start to understand that relationship between space and instrumentation that Milne tries to achieve, and if you don't believe me, give a listen below and show up tonight at 7!
Don't forget Lawrence Arabia is playing The Mint on 11/28!
