With music described “perfect for long evenings indoors” (Chicago Tribune), the psychedelic-soul quartet records & mixes their sultry strain of vivid lo-fi in-house. The pandemic brought cancellations to their biggest promises at the time (opening for Slow Pulp, touring with Winona Forever, and an official SXSW showcase); nevertheless, the band’s self-titled EP released this November via Acrophase Records (Ginger Root, V.V. Lightbody, King Pari), and it’ll be as much of a restart as a statement that Late Nite Laundry is here to stay.
“Cousins Jeremiah Lunde and Nate Uhrich originally conceived the band in 2018, when they were re-introduced to each other’s musical inclinations. Soon after, the band’s debut album Living Strange began to take shape. Bringing in many influences, from Twin Peaks to Tame Impala, Bob Dylan, and Oasis, the album was a perfect storm. It features the elements of their trademark sound, like the analog production, reminiscent of 60s and 70s rock records. Since the release of Living Strange in June of 2020, the band has expanded to a 5 piece that consists of Nate Uhrich, Jeremiah Lunde, Joshua Janiak, Evan Steidtman, and Logan Haller. You never know what’s going to happen at a Lunde show and it’s what keeps fans coming back time and time again. Rock n roll is not dead, not for Lunde at least.”
Sleepy Gaucho follows in the great American artistic tradition that is the rambler’s drawl. His Panamerican influenced folk music offers up a cocktail of wry existentialism and mellow introspection that floats somewhat aimlessly in a realm of its own. Born in Wisconsin while also growing up some time in Argentina, the young multi-instrumentalist’s music can at times be melancholic, at others ethereal, but always agreeable.
Since returning to his hometown of Milwaukee, he began the creative process for the two latest recording projects. For his sophomore record “Morning Light” he strayed away from the first record’s approach, recruiting the likes of veterans such as Patrick Sansone of Wilco and fellow talent ranging from local friends and Nashville session musicians, which releaed via Milwaukee based Hear Here Records in the middle of 2020.
“Sueños que Sobran” (“Leftover dreams” in English), is the latest release, and finds itself being a smooth fusion of sound and language, both English and Spanish, and is to be enjoyed by both languages and their cultures. The EP is out now via French label Nice Guys.
