why we love this
Almost feels like a live show blended with carefully-crafted dance floor grooves, last-minute studio fantasies, and fully-faded late night jams.
about the record
Sauropoda was recorded in an undisclosed location in the mountains over the course of two days in October 2018 and it contains five tracks lasting approximately 37 minutes. The music is free: it was captured live in the studio, there are very few overdubs, and it’s mega-organic. But you better listen for yourself.
Most of Sauropoda comes from deep jams the band road-tested following the recording of 2018’s breakthrough LP, “Polymood.” In fact, it actually sounds more like a L’Eclair live show – blended with carefully-crafted dance floor grooves, last-minute studio fantasies, and fully-faded late night jams. L’Eclair is all about the blending of things, and those things never sound the same twice; endlessly morphing like the human machine itself.
Sauropoda is the way L’Eclair sounds right now in proto-groove’s golden age. But don’t let your head get in the way and try too hard to classify this music. Instead focus on the the way “Sauropoda” makes you feel. Take your time and make it last. That’s what L’Eclair is up to!
