From today until April 30 Oxford-based four-piece Little Brother Eli are launching a Kickstarter campaign to record and release their first live album.
From old time gents in waistcoats, – who you’d expect to see performing in traditional English taverns – to a revamped disco-rock outfit, Little Brother Eli have travelled far. Their transition from garage blues to infectious disco beats was a glorious success story – at first it seemed a little unnatural, but the band pushed forward with undeniable swagger. After the release of Little Brother Eli’s first transitional track ‘Our Kind of Love’ I needed no more convincing that this was “a band without limits.”
This month the band are taking themselves one step further with the recording of their first live album through a Kickstarter campaign. The band’s bassist, Josh Rigal, said: “Releasing a live album has always been an ambition of ours.
“People are often telling us how energetic our live shows are, and that energy is sometime difficult to reproduce in the studio.
“For us, our show at the end of last year was one of those performances where everything just clicked into place – thankfully we filmed and recorded the audio from the entire gig, and we decided that it’s too good to keep to ourselves.
“We’re doing a Kickstarter Campaign to generate enough money to mix, master and edit the whole performance. It’s an opportunity for those who were at the show to relive the experience, maybe spot themselves in the video and ultimately be able to contribute towards the band’s success. It’s also a chance for fans in other countries (or fans who simply live too far away) to see and hear what we’re about.”
The live album will be an amalgamation of songs from the band’s 2016 debut album ‘Cold Tales’ and their latest EPs.
