Liquid Lunch – Sketches 2 Seed

On Sketches 2 Seed, Liquid Lunch create a unique sort of style. The laid back lounge approach of the CD’s first track All She Wants showcases the vocal power of Michele, while the instrumentation is fairly Spartan and adds to the overall composition in all of the right places. Can’t Live There has a timeless sort of sound. Liquid Lunch bring a number of distinct elements to the fore with this effort. Of particular note has to the be the slinky arrangements, the raw, impassioned vocals, and the sizzling guitar work that is given ample time to shine. With a considerable amount of polish, this effort is something that will appease any fans of good music.

Dirty Love boosts the EP’s momentum considerable. There is a strong, emphatic sound to Michele’s vocals during this effort. Hints of synth, late-1990s Madonna, and alternative rock comprise the backdrop upon which Liquid Lunch can shine. Of all of the cuts off of Sketches 2 Seed, we think that this shines brightest. Wish I Could is the penultimate effort on this release and it represents another impressive statement by the act. The innovative use of time signatures and chunky bass lines establishes this cut as wholly different from the other singles on the releasse. The smokier sound of Michele’s vocals work well with the thoughtful arrangements. This is a track that fans will have to play multiple times before hearing each and every nuance that has been presented within. Sketches 2 Seed concludes with an acoustic version of All She Wants. There is a much more organic of a sound that is crafted here; one need only hear each of the versions to hear how differently that Liquid Lunch conceptualizes the electric and acoustic editions.
