Philly DJ, producer and multi-instrumentalist RJD2 has announced his new project and album with vocalist Aaron Livingston called Icebird. Their album, The Abandoned Lullaby, is being released on RJ’s label RJ’s Electrical Connections on October 11th. RJ and Icebird perform at Union Transfer on Friday, October 14th. Livingston, who also performs with his bands The Mean and Young Vipers, worked previously with RJ on his 2010 album, Colossus on the song “Crumbs Off The Table.” He is also featured on “Guns Are Drawn” from The Roots’ Game Theory album. I had the honor of meeting up with RJ back in June during which he played me the entire new album. It’s definitely a psychedelic soul affair that brought to mind records by Funkadelic like Maggot Brain with musical elements of synth-pop, straight ahead Hendrixian rock, and of course, some serious head nodding beats. Below, download the first song from the album.
