folk, experimental, 10 p.m.
Six years ago Laney Sullivan and her boyfriend Jameson Price sold all their possessions, canceled the lease on their apartment, and took off to work on organic farms in South America. When it started to get cold, they worked in youth hostels. Sullivan had brought an accordion, and with Price on guitar, they began playing. And that was the beginning of the band Lobo Marino. Since then, the couple has been producing halcyon, experimental folk music fueled by their travels. Their fourth album, Fields, was produced entirely with a handheld recording device. Half the songs were derived from sound samples they picked up on the road, and the other half came from spontaneous improvisations inspired by their surroundings. “We go to other countries and then sort of channel what we’re experiencing musically and culturally into our own music,” she says. “I got a harmonium, and we started to play more tribal folk music that was more meditative and trying to have a transcendent experience with the music and trying to have intention in our lyrics that we’re trying to bring up some level of consciousness.” The result: Fields is a free-spirited, tranquil soundscape that defies definition. —Corey Hutchins WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY
