New Orleans’ native LoOmis, aka Patrick Bailey, returns with his 3rd release of the year, the EP ‘Vellocet’. Following the full length ‘A Solitary Attraction’and EP ‘A Dog & His Boy’, ‘Vellocet’ was crafted during the early summer months of 2011 in a friends bedroom while house sitting. Bailey continues with his lofi style of recording & writing most of the music on the spot while manipulating samples, creating loops and adding vocals with layers of math-rock influenced guitar work. On ‘Vellocet’, LoOmis replaces most of the odd time signatures of previous releases with hazy samples, touches of electronica and swirls of psychedelia. ‘Vellocet’ will be released digitally on August 1st 2011 for free or donation. LoOmis will be relocating to San Francisco during the release of ‘Vellocet’. There are 3 full lengths and 3 EP’s available on a “pay what you want” basis at LoOmis’ bandcamp page. All donations help out phenomenally.
