2020 CD release.
Lettuce released their seventh studio album, Resonate through Round Hill Records. After their European tour was cut short, they returned back to the United States and decided to release the eleven-track album they had been working on. It includes new material, tracks they had recorded during the sessions they did for Elevate, and songs they have been playing for years during their live shows. Each of these tracks has influences from different genres, including jazz, psychedelic rock, electronica, hip hop, and many more. Resonate has the band’s distinguishable funk sound throughout, but plays off of many subgenres.
The Boston-based sextet has been making music together for almost three decades, which is definitely evident within the skill and cohesion they demonstrate on each album. Each of the band’s members being world-class musicians, they complement one another throughout. Ryan Zoidis’ rich-sounding sax and synth play off of Eric “Benny” Bloom’s colourful trumpet during the horn sections, while Erick “Jesus” Coomes’ bass and Adam Deitch’s drumming provide a solid ground for the group. Filling out some sound on keys, as well as offering his smooth voice is Nigel Hall. Finally, adding a little of Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff funk-filled guitar to the mix gives the band their well-known sound.
Lettuce have claimed that Resonate is an extension of their last album, Elevate, stating that ‘we see this album as kind of a continuation of our last album. We recorded 30-odd tracks for the last one and part of them became Elevate. Now the rest became Resonate, and the names are similar because we see both records as part of a series.‘
