Title: Famously Alive Purple
1. Product Details
Dig deep enough inside yourself - start treating your body as your sanctuary rather than your enemy - and eventually youll find yourself blooming right back out into the sun. Thats the transformation Guerilla Toss trace on their newest album Famously Alive their effervescent Sub Pop debut. After a decade sprinkling glitter into grit building a reputation as one of the most ferociously creative art-rock groups working the upstate New York band have eased fully into their light. This is Guerilla Toss at their most luminescent - awake alive and extending an open invitation to anyone who wants to soak it all up beside them.Singer and lyricist Kassie Carlson multi-instrumentalist Peter Negroponte and guitarist Arian Shafiee wrote Famously Alive at home in the Catskills during the pervading quiet of the pandemic year. The uncertainty of COVID-19 lockdowns and the total disruption of routine forced Carlson to negotiate with herself in new and challenging ways. You have to be with yourself all the time during the pandemic she says. I had to figure out a way to manage my anxiety. The pandemic was hard but it helped me get comfortable inside my own body. My peace of mind came out of being thrust into the deepest shit. This album is all about being happy being alive and strength. Its meant to inspire people.The albums title derives from a poem written by a close friend of the band Jonny Tatelman who supported Carlson through the early stages of her recovery from opiate addiction. The poem comprises the entirety of the lyrics to the title track an exuberant ode to loving your own survival and charting a course into unconditional self-acceptance. The song Famously Alive is about living with purpose and excitement whether youre famous or not accepting your strangeness and thriving even if your successes look different than other peoples notes Carlson. Negroponte adds. I also like to think of it as a way to describe living through something traumatic and coming out of it a stronger wiser person.Throughout the record Guerilla Toss meet themselves with curiosity generosity and acceptance even for the harder parts of being alive. Together with guitarist Arian Shafiee Carlson and Negroponte cultivated a sound that spliced together psychedelic texturing and Krautrock syncopation with the gloss and glow of contemporary pop music. Carlsons voice its range now broadened by a recent venture into formal training puts playful searching vocal melodies and lyrics about reaching for yourself and holding fast in your own love atop ripples of Auto-Tune. Famously Alive finds Guerilla Toss coming into the fullness of their power celebrating their prismatic idiosyncrasies from a place of optimism and abundance. It is a joyous album equal parts bizarre accessible and fun.
