Today Lettuce released a brand new set of set of songs that come to us as a result of studio sessions during their week long run at the Brooklyn Bowl this past December. Featured on vocals for “Don’t Be Afraid To Try” is R&B goddess Alecia Chakour, who has also joined them on stage to do the tunes live. “Yakatori” is a pure instrumental onslaught much like we have come to expect from the funk powerhouse, being sure to incorporate thumping bass, strong horns, pumping organ, standout drumming and endless guitar licks.
The two new tracks are available for free download on Soundcloud, and will also be offered as a limited edition 7″ vinyl. Today also marks the first night of their Spring Tour, kicking off at the Roxy in LA and will segue into an annual live performance at the Royal Family Ball during New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. We can not wait to have these guys headlining our Main Stage in August. Enjoy the new tunes!
