's Erix S. Laurent released his killer debut albumMorals
in 2009, theNew Times named him Miami's Best Solo Musician
. And then, well, he slipped into semi-seclusion.
But that's all changing with the release of a new single, a return to live performance, and an album release date. Maybe most excitingly for Miami music, Teepee is this week's CMJ Sonicbids Spotlight artist, a selection that could lead to a featured slot at this year's CMJ festival in New York.
Listen to the new single after the cut and the details on an upcoming free, full-band show at Green Room in Fort Lauderdale on July 14, his first in a year.
Though Teepee's new album won't be out until November 6, its first single will receive a limited-edition seven-inch vinyl release on July 19. Here is a live video of the A-side, "Time Meant Nothing."
The drones and synth are still there. But it's a decidedly invigorated new sound for Teepee. And here's the single's B-side, "Let's Go All the Way" from the same live session.
