LDW, known for performing Talking Heads is releasing debut original album, “Movement is Chemistry”  

 10/19/21, 10/20/21 at Eugene’s WOW Hall  

Portland, Fall 2021 – For LDW, every performance must have high energy, and it’s that mantra that has the band in the studio finishing up their first album, Movement is Chemistry. With electric,  funky dance grooves featuring improvisations, choreography, amazing harmonies and high level musicianship, being at an LDW show means you are going to get your dance on. Songs from their studio album,  Movement is Chemistry, are being released this fall and the band will be touring premiere venues, along with throwing some Phish after party shows. LDW releases their first single, with a music video to follow created by watercolor performance artist, Dave Long. Long is known for his work on Dark Crystal and Mystery Science Theatre. “The song explores liminal spaces we all find ourselves in, and how we move through them. Emerging out of these last few years, we as a band sense ourselves drawn into creating meaningful experiences with our audiences. We were all in it together, and now we look forward to BEING in it...together, with the hopes of bumping into other beings on the dance floor,” says Jessa, co-writer and singer in the band.

Inspired by Talking Heads music and their own

In the summer of 2013 a group of Portland, Oregon musicians got together around the love of  Talking Heads music. Especially that of the epic 1984 concert film, Stop Making Sense, which  they consider to be the most brilliant concert film of all time. They began to perform with a 7- piece lineup that was inspired by that particular movie and time period. “There was so much  funkiness, movement, and excitement to the music in that movie and we just knew it would get people excited and feel fresh,” says Lawrence Orleck, co-founder and singer in the band.  Audiences keep coming back to see LDW. Not only for their exuberant interpretations of the  legendary Talking Heads, but also for their original music, improvisation, choreography and the experiences they deliver at every one of their shows. In a manner of 2 years they were playing to sold out shows all over the west coast and found themselves with the question:  “What’s next?” 

The upcoming Album – Movement is Chemistry

For LDW, every performance matters, and it’s that mantra that has the band in the studio  recording their first album, Movement is Chemistry. “We were so inspired by playing  David Byrne’s music for years that we found ourselves in the studio writing this album and it  just naturally fit into our set. That’s our evolution and trajectory as a band. But, yes, we still play a ton of Talking Heads because, plain and simple, it’s fun.” We named it Movement is Chemistry because for the last few years we have been enthralled with the excitement and motion of our  fans. They get down, big time.” Lawrence muses.
