Those familiar with Connecticut-based jam quartet McLovins know that this band has a long history with its 'basement takes'. The band stormed onto the scene as teenagers just over eight years ago with a mind-blowing cover of Phish's "You Enjoy Myself," which proceeded to go viral and ultimately land the band its name (courtesy of Phantasy Tour). Fast forward to 2017, and McLovins are back in the basement recording a series of equally impressive originals with mixed/mastered audio and HD multicam by Nick Sonsini of Sonsini Media.
In less than two months, the band has released three new basement takes, two of which are brand new, unreleased tunes in "Ringo" and "No Limit.' The third video for "Catch The Ball," a tune from the Funk No. Uno EP (2014), was recorded as a special tribute to Live Music Daily's Andrew McConnell, who tragically passed away on December 28th. If this is any sign of what's to come, we can expect a exciting year full of new, creative material from the jam scene's youngest seasoned veterans. See below to stream all three videos today.
McLovins just wrapped up the first leg of its 'No Limit Tour' in Colorado. The tour continues on Friday, February 2nd at Headquarters Live in Salisbury, MD. The band will then make its way down the East Coast and through the Southeast, including shows with The Werks (Richmond, VA - 2/12), Hayley Jane & The Primates (Asheville, NC - 2/15 and Atlanta, GA 2/16). The Alabama faithful can catch the band in Auburn (2/18), Huntsville (2/20), and Birmingham (2/23).
