The Age of TourlouCat.No: INN143L, INN143 Release Date: 22.04.2017
Once Prins Obi completed recording the fourth Baby Guru album with his other three friends and band co-members, everybody was happy but he, in a moment of an unfulfilled creative need, proposed to others to continue to record and make the album a double LP. The remaining three, advised him to leave the album in peace (and they did very well so).
But a need for further expression was eating him up inside, so he decided to put aside the space opera (called “Fanfare for the Astro-Man”) that he was working on but to keep its most interesting musical moments, which he recorded at Sundayman’s Inhousemusic Studio with the artist’s valuable help. Alongside he jammed at King Elephant’s Marginalia Studio with the new Dream Warriors (with members from The Voyage Limpid Sound, Chickn and Baby Guru) and occasionally with Baby Guru themselves, trying to put in order the ideas that he composed during his free weekends by the sea.
The result of all these is called ¨The Age of Tourlou”, a project of multi-sided philosophy and at the same time a tribute to pop culture. An album about the collapse of ideologies and mockery of the modern Western world, but also the necessary lightness that a man has to seek at certain moments in order to cope with the unbearable weight he is bearing.
¨The Age of Tourlou” will be out on LP (+cd version) and digital album on Record Store Day 2017 via Inner Ear.
