Lake Street Dive
By Jack Barnes
Stephen Colbert has been a long-time supporter and fan of Lake Street Dive, and last night on Monday, May 7, the band performed the single “Good Kisser” from their new album Free Yourself Up,which was released on Nonesuch Records Friday, May 4. Rolling Stone posted the performance earlier today, with Jeff Gage stating that “fleshed out by the keys work of the Boston ensemble’s newest full-time member Akie Bermiss, the band’s tongue-in-cheek breakup tune features a smoldering groove that eventually catches full flame.” Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
On Friday to celebrate the album release, Lake Street Dive shared a new music video for “Good Kisser“, directed by Bianca Giaever. “Good Kisser” has held rank in the Top 5 at Americana radio for over a month and is currently Top 20 and climbing at AAA radio.
To Lake Street Dive, the title, Free Yourself Up, is both an exhortation to listeners and a statement of the band’s purpose. In many ways, it is their most intimate and collaborative record, with the band working as a tightly knit unit to craft its ten songs. For this album, the quartet drafted touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio as well as on stage. Adding another player to the process freed up the band members to explore a wider range of instrumental textures, construct more full-bodied arrangements, and build on their well-known background harmonies.
