Album of the year goes to…

December 31, 2011

Who knew genius only took 28 days?

In just 28 days (the month of February, 2011), Ryan Lott and his magical crew have created a masterpiece: We Are Rising.
This album was funded NPR, completed on a dare, and it came out beautifully. The sound is fresh, new and interesting; it is sometimes dark, but often hopeful, playful and inspiring.
It is a DJ and producer’s conception, strung together with acoustic and organic instruments, performed wonderfully by many talented guests such as DM Stith.
When I first heard it, I thought, “this is like Age of Adz but without the Sufjan.”
And it is, in a way. But much more. I urge you to check it out.
And if I could have one wish, it would be to be able to work for this musical genius in some capacity, or maybe to at least hear this album get the hype and credit it deserves.
