Lovely Socialite, "Madison’s omnivorous mutant of a band", has returned with a vengeance. Following three years of show hiatus, puddle-muck lurking, jazz-gland regeneration, and zoom meetings, Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps’ very own sextet resurfaces with a brand-new full-length album, a renewed penchant for “toxically consonant” performance, and a highly-enriched class of aerial amphibian, known only as F.R.O.G.

THE DRIFT is a return to form for Lovely Socialite; a 50-minute opus of their unpredictable, occasionally mordant, oft-funky sound. The album displays an impressive range of compositional concepts - blistering sprints, patient groove journeys, exploratory landscapes of timeless texture, and the mean brooding stomp of a many-tentacled monster. Now in its 11th year as a collaborative project, Lovely Socialite’s unmistakeable musical character has matured into a rich sonic world for listeners of all ponds to enjoy.
