Description

Soulful, Psychedelic, Roots-Rockin' Americana from St. Louis, Missouri, with brotherly harmonies and genre-bending grooves.

Notes

The new album "Day and Night" by Brothers Lazaroff is both a summation and a departure. All of the band's musicianship and ambition is here, all of their mastery of roots music and rock & roll. But there's also a noisy, trippy tension running through the lush arrangements, a sense of urgency and controlled chaos. This is truly cosmic American music.

For their fifth full length effort, Jeff and David Lazaroff went into Jacob Detering’s Red Pill Entertainment Studios in St. Louis with just drummer Grover Stewart and a group of songs they hadn’t fully developed. All of the basic tracks were recorded with just drums and guitars. “This was a departure from our regular studio approach of going in with complete songs and teaching them to the whole band on the spot in the studio.” said David Lazaroff, “For these sessions we were writing bridges, interludes, and new verses on the spot. The ease of working with just drums and guitars made it so we didn’t have to relay new chord changes, melodic or harmonic ideas that developed on the fly. The intuitive communication we have with Grover after nine years of working together allowed us to create in the moment, providing for a lot of surprises and happy accidents.”

The tracks were then brought to bassist Teddy Brookins to develop his parts, which were recorded at Red Pill over the course of 3 sessions. Once the bass was locked in they started to layer keyboards.

“For the keyboards we exclusively used a 60’s Farfisa organ and a baby grand piano. We wanted to explore some of the borderland sounds, both real and imagined, inspired by time spent in Austin and our New Orleans roots.” recounts Jeff Lazaroff. “Day and Night” marks the first lineup change in seven years for Brothers Lazaroff with the introduction of Nate Carpenter on keys (Messy Jiverson, Downstero). Former long-time keyboardist Mo Egeston recorded about fifty percent of the keyboard parts, and Carpenter worked on the other half.

At that point, Brothers Lazaroff took the recordings into their home studio (Room 18) and began experimenting and editing. “We had the idea of using violin and trumpet lines throughout the album as opposed to a bunch of solos.” said David. “For the violin parts we brought in our cousin and mentor Stuart Rosenberg, a well-known Chicago musician and producer steeped in most musical styles and traditions. He composed improvised melodies and harmonies on each track that hint at mariachi, klezmer and afro-cuban all at the same time.” Adam Hucke (of local St. Louis heroes Funky Butt Brass Band) came in after and completed these sections with trumpet and coronet parts that play with and off of what Rosenberg laid down.

Lastly, artist and sound designer Paco Proano from Denver, Colorado came into St. Louis and worked for a week in Room 18 processing sounds and instruments within the recordings, mixing them with field recordings from his recent travels to Spain and Morocco. His parts layer, pad and transition each song on “Day and Night” The freedom of working “off the clock” in their basement studio enabled the brothers to really refine the vocals and allowed some experimental guitar work they might not have explored otherwise.

The files were then taken back to Jacob Detering at Red Pill for final mixing.

Brad Sarno of Blue Jade Audio mastered the album.
