Deviled Up: Lotus Echo’s Sell Your Soul

Juke in Japan takes on many forms, but nearly demonic feels pretty rare. Producer Lotus Echo delves into these heavy and dark corners on Sell Your Soul, an album put out via American label Fusion. Lotus Echo gets harsh right away, with the deep-voiced demands of opener “Do You Say That Sell My Soul,” before chopping up loud, Judas-Priest-ish electric guitar notes on “Boreeeed.” It isn’t a totally heavy affair…it can get downright playful on cuts such as “Get Moneyyyy.” But what makes Sell Your Soul an interesting listen is how much of it feels just off, or how uneasy it can get (check the hair-raising skitters of “Legend”). Get it here, or listen below.
