LSA Bits And Pieces

CD Label: Elements Records

 

  Aliza Grant AKA LSA (Life's Sole Apprentice) is a multi-talented musician/programmer/engineer that creates her music with keyboards, guitar, sampling, and various vocalizations. On Bits And Pieces Aliza decided, that she wanted to give everyone a collection of her music that spoke to her very best efforts, showcasing her diversity.
What you will hear on this CD is an amalgamation of sounds emanating from guitars, keyboards, voices, natural sounds, and some vocals. What it all boils down to in the end is a wide presentation of electronica, trip-hop, and downbeat.

If you like music such as this you will find Bits And Pieces to be a real chill out experience with plenty of variety that allows you to get into a groove, and a most consistent and pleasant one. There is something universally about music like this; I find it very uplifting and relaxing at the same time. By sampling sounds of life, nature, and our surroundings in general, then mixing it electronically with layers of keyboards and various sounds that shift from one dimension to another, it makes for an ambient surrealistic experience that one has to engage in to find out what it could mean personally.

One of the best tracks is "Underwater Blues." I love the guitar with the reverb and the cool keyboards that sound like they are melting all around the other instruments and sounds. It's futuristic yet grounded in basic guitar chords for a foundation. I like the way LSA takes one idea, and then builds and joins several sounds around it. It's a clever adaptation of the tools at hand and most definitely one of the best tracks on the CD. Similarly, the next track "Cricket" is mostly synthesizer where varying degrees the keyboards are used to build a composition; it is something you could imagine hearing playing in the background of a science fiction movie. This music is not devoid of emotion and feeling as one may think, it's very colorful and full of life. "Jesus Loves Me" features vocals and a prolific message that is a step away from what most of this album is about. Only the artist knows how personal the instrumental runs in every track are and you can try to read between the lines as you go along but its best to feel what you it makes feel, then it becomes your own interpretation what each title means.

All I can say is give this CD a spin, let yourself become enveloped in all the sounds and draw your own conclusions.
