Dancing With Bad Grammar: The Director's Cut
Eclectic and exquisite postmodern blues and folk-tinged songs - drawing inspiration from beat poetry, nick drake, chain gang blues and hip hop.
Having only picked up the guitar a few years ago, after being given one for his 21st birthday, L.A. Salami recorded this album in one week at Urchin Studios in Hackney with engineer Dan Cox and producer Matt Ingram, who he was introduced to by old friend and touring partner Lianne Le Havas. “I want to portray modern life using the past as a vehicle,” concludes L.A. “I love Sixties and Seventies music, that’s where my heart is. But I don’t want it to sound of the past, I want it to speak of now.”
