Left Or Right: Trippy

Jimi Hendrix, 10CC, Bob Marley and The Beatles walk into a bar in Dunedin and start jamming. Not quite, but Left Or Right are about as close to that as you’re gonna find. Effortlessly mashing elements of blues, rock, psychedelia, reggae and pop, it’s enough to have you hooked from the very start. ‘Trippy’ is the third release from Left Or Right, and having spent eight years in the scene now, the genre-mashing from these seasoned musicians/songwriters is exceptional, seemingly effortless and ultimately unique. A distinct flavour that leaves your taste buds tingling with nuggety goodness. Recorded at NZMIC Albany Street Studio by Mike Holland, and mastered in Oz at Turtlerock Mastering, the production quality matches the songwriting. Crafted to perfection, and encapsulating the sound of the variously-referenced old masters to a tee. A thoroughly enjoyable album from start to finish, with eight tracks over half an hour just enough to leave you satisfied yet still wanting more.
