ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The LP's
Earthbound

California children The LP's have delivered a truly unique and heartfelt record with Earthbound. Singer Jesse Lee Jacobs and keyboardist/ producer Dorian Heartsong split up instrument duties, layering the well-produced retro sound with vintage keyboards and most importantly, writing great songs. There is a social consciousness in tracks like the funky Wurlitzer-driven
"Empathy" that is sadly missing from much music these days, but the LP's don't shy from speaking out. Jacobs sings like a modern day Marc Bolan and lends a cool vibe to the impassioned lyrics throughout. In fact, many of the hooks will stay with you and encourage repeat rotation.

Warning: Earthbound may leave traces of Bowie/T-Rex/Pink Floyd/Lennon/C. Mayfield in your blood. Other side effects may include: Uncontrollable Humming, Chronic Snapping & Clapping, with possible Night Sweats.

This first incarnation of the LP's are Jesse Lee Jacobs/Dorian Heartsong

A brilliant collection of songs
Finally something with substance. I enjoyed this album very much. An amazing collections of songs which transitions through a diverse array of musical styles and sounds with precision orchestration. From one song to the next, there is a bit of everything in this album and it comes together completely in a brilliantly simplistic, and profound arrangement of songs. From the erie space sounds in songs like "Hope it was good & "Earthbound", to the bluesy folk riffs in, "Nothing" and "Anything for a change" This album goes everywhere. I especially like "Moon" which is truly a brilliant song that evokes emotion everytime I hear it.
The lyrics are cleverly written and insightful. Through each song evolves a philosophy about the human condition and its demise. This album tells a tale from a perspective which expresses a very realistic, cynical and metaphysical perspective on the state of affairs of the human condition. Lyrics in songs like "Anything for a Change" paint an all too real, dysmal picture of the of the blatant hypocracy and narcissism which runs rampant throughout the world. I especially like "Earthbound", which brilliantly expresses both the complexities and the common bonds which all people share.
Collectively, each song hold its own piece of the underlying motive of this album. The arrangement is brilliant. Each song comes together and completes the perfect theme. "Everybody's in a human race in the meantime."
