CD review: Lemolo’s ‘Red Right Return’

I got to caught up with Lemolo‘s Meagan Grandall prior to the release of the new CD “Red Right Return,” and the start of her national house show tour, which kicks off with a CD-release party on Nov. 6 at the Crocodile in Seattle (check out the story at kitsapsun.com/entertainment, and in the October 23 issue of Kitsap A&E, part of that day’s Kitsap Sun print edition.1023_KSFE_Lemolo1

The official release of “Red Right Return” isn’t until November 10, but Meagan was kind enough to supply me with a review copy. That review also is posted at kitsapsun.com and will be in the October 23 A&E.

A preview snippet: “More densely layered than its prececessor, “Red Right Return” still manages to keep the haunting intimacy and musical minimalism that made “Kaleidoscope” so memorable.”

You can also hear sample two of the tracks on the CD, “Low Halo” and “Hold Light,” and pre-order copies of “Red Right Return” at lemolomusic.com.

It’s been more than three years since the first Lemolo CD, “The Kaleidoscope” (with original drummer-keyboardist Kendra Cox) which was met with considerable acclaim both from fans and critics and made Lemolo a buzz band on the Northwest music scene.
