Lazlo Hollyfeld

Lazlo Hollyfeld formed in the winter of 2003 in Buffalo, NY. Bassist Chris Gangarossa and keyboardist Scott Molloy began by trying to focus on creating a purely instrumental sound based on the ideas of simplicity, and dominant rhythms and textures. After the addition of guitarist Jeff Mcleod and drummer Matt Felski, Lazlo Hollyfeld quickly became one of the most known groups in upstate New York. The groups first release, 2004, "Our Universe Is Feeding" is a raw, one-take-recorded, instrumental journey spanning melodic happiness to lethargic, hypnotic rhythms. In late 2005, the group released, "The Pacer EP", which contains rock songs with a very electronic, soulful and moody feeling. The first track, "Everything You Know Is Gone" is almost breakbeat rock, with its uplifting changes leading to a guitar that screams echos. Th Pacer Ep then changes into something much different. With the heavily electro-inflected "Miss Hong", which then seamlessly blends into the title track, "The Pacer", The Pacer EP is sexy. Lazlo Hollyfeld followed this release with 2 long United States tours, marked by showing their faces @ sxsw, and two nights in a row @ The Boom Boom Room in San Francisco with Mike Clark and Robert Walters. In November 2007 finished recording the third release "Elimination", an energy packed album, with a 70's rock feel, while keeping the bands instrumental and harmonious sound in tact, only, with violence, and anger-driven instrumental themes. The fourth album is called "Desert", a postrock concept album of sorts. Released May 29th, 2010. Infused with electronic goodness, hooky melodies, and driving rhythms, Lazlo Hollyfeld has made a fantastic and cerebral album, pushing the boundaries of catagorization.
