Teepee Named CMJ Spotlight Artist, Releases New Single

When Teepee's Erix S. Laurent released his killer debut album Morals in 2009, the New 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.

Crossfade will be interviewing Teepee soon. But in the meantime, check out Teepee's CMJ feature here.

Teepee. Saturday, July 14. Green Room, 109 SW Second Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Doors open at 10 p.m. and there is no cover charge. Ages 21 and up. Call 954-449-1030 or visit greenroomlive.com.
