When you get older, plainer, saner
Will you remember all the danger
We came from?

It’s been almost four years since “Lost On You” exploded across Europe. In our old Europe, where the entry threshold for a US artist is truly high. Read more

Zu: Same here! What’s more is I was surprised to discover this cohesiveness, as prior to the release of Heart To Mouth, LP was describing the album in her interviews as eclectic and being kind of a collection of songs which simply sound good together. And they really do, but it’s just a little too humble of a description, wouldn’t you say? There’s much more to the full body of work that Heart To Mouth is. Read more

Zu: Listening to unfamiliar music, as much as it’s thrilling, is demanding, no matter if you like the artist or not. Actually, perhaps all the more so if you like the artist. I guess it’s different for everybody, but when I put a record on for the first time, my head starts to play tricks on me and tries to solve every equation and find the answers instantly, or even ahead of the curve. It is just impossible for me to turn off my thinking and just let the music flow. Read more

When we look one year back, we clearly remember this vibe, this magical tension hanging in the air. People were impatiently looking forward to LP’s 2017 American tour, and the closer it got, the more this impatience showed.

It was the fall of 2011 when LP got signed to yet another major label, this time to Warner Bros. It was a particularly intense and fortunate period in her career as a couple of months earlier her song “Into The Wild” got picked up for the Citibank commercial. Soon, and very much unexpectedly, the song went viral, and a couple of months later, LP would take this one and several other songs to EastWest Studios, to perform them for a small audience of invited guests and people from the music business.

But back to “All I Want” and LP’s take on it. It’s no surprise that we love it – LP is an emotional singer and performer, hence the second verse of “All I Want,” that she got to sing, was a perfect choice for her. Especially as for all the lyrical lines, the four she sang were not only the most interesting, but also the most moving. Her fruity vocal contrasts with Stephen’s soft voice, and she nailed bringing out that contrast with each performance. Read more

1. Muddy Waters – live at The Sayers Club (October 16th, 2015)

When it comes to the sound of the instruments, 2015’s version of “Muddy Waters” is way more gentle and soothing than its current version. The track itself is less powerful and low-key. Read more

You probably need to live in LA or somewhere else in California, or at least in the freaking US, to fully grasp the phenomenon of Hollywood music clubs. So this will probably be kind of, well, interesting (at best) to tell the story of LP & The Sayers Club from the European perspective, having no actual American experience except for intensely vivid American dreams and millions of subject-related books and movies absorbed over the years. Read more
