The Life Force Trio in Stores Tomorrow!

The highly anticipated debut album from The Life Force Trio, “Living Room,” will finally hit stores tomorrow. If you still haven’t heard them, listen to our podcasts and stream some tracks on iTunes. This is a record you will not want to miss!

Carlos Nino, the group’s leader, describes their influences thusly: “Sly & The Family Stone’s There’s A Riot Goin’ On and Fresh, Shuggie Otis’s Inspiration Information, Sun Ra, John & Alice Coltrane and everything from French Impressionism to African High-Life and ‘60s Space Rock – to me, that’s the vibration we were tuned to making ‘Living Room’,” Nino explains. “We just got together and made music that was open and from the heart.”
