The title of Lake Street Dives Free Yourself Up is both an exhortation to listeners and a statement of purpose for the band. The songs have an infectious swagger, even when dealing with awkward breakups or the unsettled state of our world. Free Yourself Up is Lake Street Dives most confident album yet, seriously soulful and exuberantly rocking. And, in many ways, it is Lake Street Dives most intimate and collaborative, with the band itself taking over the production reins and working as a tightly knit unit to craft these ten songs. In addition, the quartet drafted touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio, literally freeing the band up to explore a wider range of instrumental textures, construct more full-bodied arrangements, and build stacks of lively background harmonies.On Free Yourself Up, the sound is influenced by late sixties-early seventies R&B, AM pop, and FM rock while the lyrics are informed more by contemporary events. The album opens with Baby, Dont Leave Me Alone With My Thoughts, which envisions a lover acting as a human shield against the anxiety of our Twitter-ravaged age. Its funny, sweet, a little angry, and definitely right up-to-the-minute in its sentiment. Singer Rachael Price says, I thought about that song as the thesis of this record. Its a disco-dance fun song but its also a person talking about needing comfort from another person, and it has a reference to the political climate.The lyrics to the guitar-driven Shame, Shame, Shame, which feels like undiscovered, transistor-radio-ready AM gold, bravely speak to an unnamed person: No Im not getting caught in your little spider web/Wont let an angry dog get me down/Dont you think its time we put this dog out of his misery?/Change is coming, oh yeah Bassist Bridget Kearney explains, This album is based in the realities in our time, which have inevitably become part of everyones daily life. Its something you think about and obsess overand write songs about
