The new album is lengthy one - 14 tracks totaling over an hour of music - but it doesn’t drag on. Fast, jazzy rhythms and soulful energy keep it moving along. The opening track “Rhino” starts out with a vigorous, half-minute drum solo then incorporates horns, organ and an electrifying guitar riff. You’re already hooked by time Corey jumps in with his strong and clear vocals, “I’m a rhino busting down the track.” Legendary New Orleans keyboardist Ivan Neville is featured on four songs, including “Pimp Limp,” a smooth, funkadelic track that’s all groove and swagger, and our favorite, “If There's A Hell Below (We're All Gonna Go).”
In support of the new album, Lubriphonic will venture the states on a 20-stop tour. They’ll kick off the tour a week from Friday with a hometown show at the Double Door. Also playing will be local blues rock quartet GreenSugar and electronic jazz quintet Elev8tor. Advance tickets to this show come with a free digital sampler, which includes songs from Lubriphonic's three studio releases and a few live tracks.
Lubriphonic plays Friday, April 1 at Double Door, 1573 N Milwaukee, 9 p.m., $10-$20, 21+
