Our friends over at Audio Barre are pleased to present an interview with LITZ in anticipation of their forthcoming release titled Illusion of Time due out April 1st. For jamband fans this is a must listen. In fact they recently opened for Twiddle at the famous 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. This band has the flavors of all your favorite jam acts and they have some extra eccentric flair in the live setting. The first time I saw them live they blew me away with the top notch musicianship. The progressions and arrangements are jammy, but still move with a sense of purpose that is strongly driven by their instrumental mastery.
LITZ brings together a wide array of musical influences ranging from funk, jam, reggae, soul, to electronica to amalgamate a new sound for the ears of the world. Their sound strides to sonically transport its listeners to another planet free of the stress, struggles, and tribulations of modern day life through the use of funky horn riffs, wah-wah keys, pounding bass, driving/progressive rhythms and melt your face guitar.
