First Chaise Lounge Insomnia CD Review

by Chaise Lounge

by Chaise Lounge

CHAISE LOUNGE/Insomnia: They have lounge in their name and they have a certain retro vibe but this is nothing like what came out of the lounge revival craze in the 90s.

This is a modern pomo lounge with a retro vibe to set the framework but the picture in the frame is as modern as can be.  A sly record on musical and lyrical levels, I hate to call it thinking man’s fun because those who skim this will think this is egghead jazz. It isn’t. With enough mixmaster involved in the sound not to simply call it jazz, this is a solidly left of center modern record that falls short of art rock on one side and short of something to flog at a dance club on the other.  It’s cool no matter where you want to pin it.  It’s different and if you are up for something new that mixes Brazil, jazz, witty lyrics and more, you and this record are ready for each other.  Check it out.

Jazz Dynamos, Chaise Lounge hosts their “Insomnia” CD release Party April 21, At The Hamilton DC

Sleep is Overrated
At least that that is the theme for Chaise Lounge’s CD release party, on April 21st, for their 4th album, aptly named, “Insomnia”. This hot jazz band, with just enough “lounge” to fill up a nice big martini, will be hosting  an “Insomnia” themed cocktail party  and concert for their fans at DC’s hottest new supper club, The Hamilton.

Artisan cocktails will be flowing and each guest will get their own bit of Chaise Lounge swag to remember this speakeasy kind of evening right here in 2012. There may even be a chance for a photo with the band or autographed CD.

A full concert will follow, featuring Chaise lounge’s unique blend of clever lyrics and artfully arranged musical numbers, reminiscent of Capitol Records circa 1962. You might call it “Early Stereo”, or perhaps Lounge with a capital “L,” or maybe just plain enjoyable.
