A La Lu La

Label: Ultramarine

Format: Vinyl LP

Genre: Experimental

In stock


Amolvacy is Aaron Moore from Volcano the Bear, Dave Nuss from No-Neck Blues Band, and Sheila 16 of the Laboratory Theater Group, NYC. The band creates compositions from its improvisations centered around strong elemental percussion, radical theatrical vocals, and classical acoustic instruments. Recurring themes in Amolvacy’s texts are the pain of relationships, the affirmation of the feminine in myth, the hero’s journey, and continuous need to flame the passions of the heart. “A La Lu La” specifically addresses the gap of language in facilitating accurate communication, a gap that only music at its most primal can fill. The back of the album features text by Jose da Fonseca & Pedro Carolino, two Portugese who in 1855 created an English phrasebook titled “English As She is Spoke,” but who faced just one problem: they didn’t know any English. The linguistic train wreck that ensues mirrors the play of language, sound, and unintentional humor on “A La Lu La.”
