The title of Lake Street Dive's [web site | Amazon.com] Free Yourself Up is both an exhortation to listeners and a statement of purpose for the band. The songs have an infectious swagger, even when dealing with awkward breakups or the unsettled state of our world. Free Yourself Up is Lake Street Dive's most confident album yet, seriously soulful and exuberantly rocking. And, in many ways, it is Lake Street Dive's most intimate and collaborative, with the band itself taking over the production reins and working as a tightly knit unit to craft these ten songs. In addition, the quartet—drummer Michael Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, singer Rachael Price, and guitarist/trumpeter Michael "McDuck" Olson—drafted touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio, literally freeing the band up to explore a wider range of instrumental textures, construct more full-bodied arrangements, and build stacks of lively background harmonies.
Free Yourself Up is the follow up to the band's Nonesuch Records debut Side Pony. The band toured eighteen months for that album, including a sold-out headlining show at Radio City Music Hall. Side Pony was lauded in the press, with Rolling Stone calling it "irresistible," and the Boston Globe saying, "Side Pony is a confident, expertly played statement from a band that's been honing its approach for more than a decade, and it clearly shows that Lake Street Dive is ready to make itself known to whatever audiences have yet to succumb to its many charms."
The sound of Free Yourself Up is influenced by late sixties-early seventies R&B, AM pop, and FM rock, while the lyrics are informed more by contemporary events. Bridget Kearney says, "This album is based in the realities in our time, which have inevitably become part of everyone's daily life. It's something you think about and obsess over—and write songs about. Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself, no matter what's going wrong."
