Lazlo Hollyfeld to release new album, Desert

On Saturday (May 29) Lazlo Hollyfeld will take the stage of Mohawk Place to  unleash their newest post-rock-opera, titled Desert. The 11 song album, recorded at their own studio, dubbed Lazlo Studiofeld, might be their most ambitious to date. Earlier in the year the band set out on an 11 day tour filled with inspiring events and experiences. At the end of the tour they meticulously organized their memories and feelings to create the patterns and structures that make up the soaring and rhythmic instrumental pieces on Desert. Lazlo was formed in 2003 and since then they have released three full length albums and an EP, as well as involving themselves in other diverse local musical projects. Guitarist Jeff Mcleod regularly jams with the classic rock inspired musicians in The Jamie Moses Band, while drummer Matt Felski frequently performs original jazz sets as the leader of the Matt Felski Quartet. Recently the band has even begun playing cover sets of Talking Heads songs. Lazlo’s sound is just as broad as their musical talents, ranging from electronic rock epics like their newest single “The Minister,” to atmospheric guitar based jams, reminiscent of Do Make Say Think, like “How Many More Must Die,” off of their last album, Elimination. Local indie-folk rockers Drivers To Warsaw open what should be a night of diverse musical flavors.
