“We heard something on the radio about Liu Bei, a Chinese warlord who was known as an amazing strategist and a really caring, benevolent leader. He was also eight feet tall and had ears so big he could see them. Seemed like something to aspire to.”
That’s surely all you need to know to know that Liu Bei are worth listening to. Infatuation is a twinkling soundscape evocative of M O N E Y and Mazzy Star, it’s filled with echoing shimmers and concrete contemplation. Out via paradYse/Transgressive Records on July 7th.
Liu Bei play Servant Jazz Quarters in London on July 10th 2014.
Tickets are available here.
