Life In A Blender: new album "Happy Enough"

Life In A Blender just finished mixing their ninth studio album titled Happy Enough, produced by Al Houghton. Its CD release show will be on Saturday August 26th at Joe's Pub in Manhattan. 

With a David Byrne bravado, Life In A Blender paints a detailed lyric landscape of the bits and pieces of our lives. There’s a feeling of pure joy and devilishly playful aplomb evident in everything from their robust vocals to the gorgeously melodic and energetic arrangements. Per their last album, The New Yorker writes:

"Led by the singer and songwriter Don Ralph, the satirical chamber-pop group Life in a Blender plays literate songs featuring tasteful string arrangements . . . where angular guitar parts and sardonic lyrics create a gritty ambience."
