Randy & The Bloody Lovelies:
By Mandana Beigi
Lift (CD Cheap Lullaby)

If you’ve never heard of the Bloody Lovelies, Lift is pretty much going to be the debut record for you (with some changes, which we’ll get into in a little bit), but for those of you who do know the band and have heard their debut, Some Truth and a Little Bit of Money (2003), this is going to be an interesting sophomore release.

So what do I mean by that? Well, it appears that Randy Wooten, the singer/songwriter and the founder of the Bloody Lovelies, has decided to take on a more solo-oriented lead within the group, hence the addition of his name to the band. The good news is that, the music is just as awesome as it was before – although the sound has matured in some ways. At times, this record makes you miss that group passion and enthusiasm that made all the difference in the first album, but at the same time, Wooten has proved to be an outstanding singer/songwriter/keyboardist on his own.

Lift is, for the most part, a very personal creation and, as Wooten himself describes, “Definitely catchy but sometimes over-the-top and eccentric.” There seems to be an ongoing theme with 13 tracks on this album; the constant story of human contact and interaction. “Red Carpets,” “And I Do,” and “Blue Horizons” are among the most memorable tunes. And Wooten’s powerful, beautiful vocals have certainly grown in depth and range.

Wooten has also put together a stellar lineup of remarkably talented musicians, who have performed on this album. From drummer Shawn Pelton (Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Cheryl Crow) to violinist Lisa Germano (U2, David Bowie) and last but not least, the original members of the Bloody Lovelies, Lift is a well-created work of pop/rock that you wouldn’t want to miss.
