Minneapolis sextet Lucy Michelle And The Velvet Lapelles are pleased to release their newest full length album, HEAT, today. HEAT is the band’s fourth full-length release and their first since 2010’s Good of That. The album was recorded at Vacation Island Recording Studios in Brooklyn with acclaimed producer/engineer Matt Boynton (MGMT, Beirut, Bat for Lashes). HEAT spotlights the band’s eclectic musical style, creating a brilliant wash of organic psych-folk from a blend of interweaving ukeleles, accordion, electric guitar, upright bass, cello, drums and (of course) Lucy Michelle’s uniquely recognizable vocals.
The band is also excited to announce that their recently released music video for HEAT’s first single “Just A Kid” will have its MTV premiere on June 11 on their Freshman 5 program. The video was created by Picture Machine Productions, the same team who produced last year’s music video for Bon Iver’s “Calgary.” Watch the video for “Just A Kid” below:
