When you drink the "Heir of Mystery" cocktail you taste a consciousness-bending blast of the 60’s, a twist of sexy-70’s glam rock, and a dash of 80’s synth-pop. But with that dynamic voice and those camera-friendly good looks, the Lord Russ buzz is intoxicatingly cutting-edge!
Though it’s evident he’s been inspired by, and compared to, Roxy Music, Ariel Pink, Of Montreal, Ziggy-era Bowie, Beck, Serge Gainsbourg, MGMT, and Os Mutantes, Lord Russ’ rich arrangements and insanely catchy melodies define a style all his own.
One listen to this album will transport you into Lord Russ' surreal world of celestial-cerebral wanderlust, sex, and monkeys (you read that right!). Acclaimed by critics for it's genre-blending appeal, "Heir of Mystery" comes on strong with one track building on the next until you're wrapped in it's irresistibly lush landscape. One moment this concept album rocks your world with lustful, driving power, then seduces you with beautifully haunting melodies.
Nostalgic, but altogether of the times, Lord Russ' triumphant album will find a permanent home in your CD player and wear out your repeat button!
