Sea of Lettuce capture the vibe of blurry nights and bad life decisions.
The night blends into day. The day slides into night. Floating moments. A spotted memory. Hooked on every narcotic of an organic substance. Cruising around town looking for fun-loving trouble; chasing that childhood sense of wonder.
With their self-titled album, Sea of Lettuce has captured the vibe of those blurry nights full of bad life decisions: flying about a world that is spinning, falling in love with everyone around you. The album grooves along at that out-of-your-mind frequency. It feels lucid, like lying in bed half awake, trying to grab on to pleasant, drifting thoughts.
Sea of Lettuce draws from a wide range of musical influences for an album that is made of dreamy guitar riffs with rough/smooth vocals locked in tight to the beat. The band dips a toe in the psychedelia pool, but still manage to remain firmly grounded in solid reality. It’s hard to peg Sea of Lettuce down to a specific genre; they are alternative in the fullest sense of the word. They pull from the best selection of musical ingredients, mixing them together with a gonzo sensibility to create an album that feels like the first half of Trainspotting: wild, unkempt nights of reckless abandon, without any of the negative consequences.
