Lotus – “Bellwether” mp3
Is this tonal or atonal? With the prominent off-key cowbell it’s hard to say. Don’t get me wrong, we like more cowbell. Is this rock or is it some kind of 70’s funky jazz fusion? Wait that old school vocoder effect, now we’re in clubland! But the geetars and keys speak of jam bands in a sun-drenched summer bong-fest. Could it be this is all of those things? Presenting the very talented Lotus, ladies and gents, a jam band which brings a broad vocabulary and tangible joy to their performances. Summer playlist keeper material, fasho.
