Tolchin, Jonah: Lava Lamp

Tolchinjonah: Lava Lamp
Title: Lava Lamp
Label: Yep Roc Records

It's a sense of freedom and endless possibility that defines Lava Lamp, Jonah Tolchin's bold and adventurous new collection. Built around a series of loose, live-in-the-studio performances, the record is more sonically diverse than anything in Tolchin's catalog, expanding on the folk-blues style he's become known for to incorporate elements of indie rock and grunge fueled by gritty electric guitars and a muscular rhythm section. The songs are raw and emotional, reckoning with alienation and escapism in a modern world defined by 24/7 stimulation, but there's a buoyancy to them that belies their intensity, a mischievous playfulness that Tolchin credits in part to his new role as a stepfather. In that sense, Lava Lamp can be heard as the sound of Tolchin reconnecting with his own childhood, casting off the burdens of expectation and returning to a musical sandbox where the only limits are the bounds of his own imagination.
