Lovely Socialite ‘The Drift’ album release show!

Lovely Socialite ‘The Drift’ album release show!

Jul 30, 7:00pm

Cafe CODA1224 Williamson st.Madison, WI53703 Map

Lovely Socialite has returned with a new album called THE DRIFT!

Release party presented by BlueStem Jazz on Saturday, July 30, 7 PM at Cafe Coda (Madison, WI).

…Report 2-6z.11, anura, suborder heleioporus australiacus …Dermis level permeo-turbine sequences complete. Calibrating microbiome fueling ratios. Metatarsal elongation - 84.3%. Initiating final flight of F.R.O.G. …

Lovely Socialite, Madison’s omnivorous mutant of a band, has returned with a vengeance. Following three years of show hiatus, puddle-muck lurking, jazz-gland regeneration, and zoom meetings, Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps’ very own sextet resurfaces with a brand-new full-length album, a renewed penchant for “toxically consonant” performance, and a highly-enriched class of aerial amphibian, known only as F.R.O.G.

THE DRIFT is a return to form for Lovely Socialite; a 50-minute opus of their unpredictable, occasionally mordant, oft-funky sound. The album displays an impressive range of compositional concepts - blistering sprints, patient groove journeys, exploratory landscapes of timeless texture, and the mean brooding stomp of a many-tentacled monster. Now in its 11th year as a collaborative project, Lovely Socialite’s unmistakeable musical character has matured into a rich sonic world for listeners of all ponds to enjoy.

F.R.O.G., tentacle-monster, Socialite, and all lovely guests take flight at Cafe Coda on SAT, JUL 30 at 7 PM. Mrs. Phipps’ lads will perform new music from THE DRIFT. In addition, the event will mark the 10-year anniversary of Socialite’s debut album, Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps Registers her Delight. Guests will enjoy fan-favorite Socialite tunes from this classic recording.

Tickets are $10, available at the door and online at cafecoda.club/buy-tickets/

No tadpoles were hurt in the making of this album.
