Adam Lipman has moved into the modern era with his new album Prove the Beast, his third release on the legendary Shrimper label. While From Your Mouth to God’s Ears (2009) was a record of words, and Glacial (2013) was a record of a voice singing those words in perfect pitch, Prove the Beast is a record of worlds: basketball legends, misogynistic feminist fables, love through the prism of drink, slow counterpoint piano, hip-hop beats, off-key / off-kilter hand-claps and drums, Peruvian pop goddesses, income inequality, Jesus as unrealistic sex god role model, dating as ritual death dance, and love as catalyst for death-inducing high-speed country driving. Helping this project along was Michael Sherk (Mandarin Dynasty), who took the helm as producer and engineer. Cooped up together in an oceanside cabin in Big Lagoon, Trinidad, CA, the pair recorded mostly live for four days. Completing the recordings with overdubs over several months was Allen Callaci (Refrigerator, singer on Glacial) adding vocal touches, Tommy Seven (also known as Controller 7, hip hop instrumentalist and Anticon label alum) with drum programming, Taryn Popplewell on vocals, Kevin Ferguson on drums, Matt Longwell on saxophone and Aaron Alcala on piano. The cover is drawn by Bay Area artist Gonzalo Perez Acosta.
