Slightly Stoopid will unveil their latest musical experiment Meanwhile… Back at the Lab on June 30th through the band’s Stoopid Records. Meanwhile…Back at the Lab is the next evolution for the San Diego-based group lauded for their multi-instrumental cross-genre blend of rock, reggae, folk and blues with hip-hop, punk, and funk elements. The title and album cover reference the band’s collective escape from touring and home life at their San Diego warehouse studio (The Lab at Stoopid Studios), where they have been working on numerous creative and collaborative projects. Meanwhile…Back at the Lab is the first release from these sessions and now available for pre-order on iTunes with an instant gratification track from the album, “Life Rolls On,” for immediate download.
The forthcoming album was recorded at the band’s studio; as well as at Platinum Sound, NYC; Rivas Studios, L.A.;Mixdown TownLBC, Long Beach, CA; and was self-produced by the band along with The Lab’s in-house maestro James Wisner. At one juncture, the band came straight off a flight from their South American Tour to NYC, where JerryWonda (TheFugees,Wyclef Jean) engineered an impromptu late night/early morning session at Platinum Sound, yielding the collaborative “Come Around.” Back home Kyle and Miles also called on their long time friends and Southern California music icons, Michael “Miguel” Happoldt and Marshall “Ras MG” Goodman, to produce standout tracks “Life Rolls On” and “The Prophet.”
