The Scoop on Scarp
Lobate Scarp is a progressive rock band based in Los Angeles. Their influences range from Genesis, Yes, and Kansas, to the rock sensibilities of bands like Muse, Faith No More and Styx, and a pop infusion of catchy vocals like Simple Minds, Duran Duran, and The Police as well as strong ties to musical theater. Their interesting take on prog-rock will surely take you on a unique musical journey.
Lobate Scarp’s full-length debut album “Time and Space” received accolades from all over the world. The album took 5+ years and 50+ musicians to make. In addition to vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, also recorded were Trumpets, Saxophone, Viola, Violin, Cello, Theremin, Glockenspiel, and a 30+ person choir singing in Latin. Percussionist Alex Acuña (Weather Report) appears as a special guest in the opening 15-minute title track and Rich Mouser (Spock’s Beard, Transatlantic, Neal Morse) mixed and mastered the album. Steve Leavitt produced and engineered. It was made possible by a successful Kickstarter campaign and has since received accolades from all over the world, played on radio shows, podcasts, as well as had positive reviews in numerous music publications.
Their new singles “Nothing Wrong” “And We Tried” and ”Beautiful Light” will be released together on their upcoming EP entitled “Spirals and Portals”. The tracks were partially recorded and mixed once again at The Mouse House under the expertise of Mouser. David A. Hardy, the world’s oldest living space artist, has again created the artwork for the new EP and Lobate’s 2nd full length album due sometime in 2020.
