Rare Seed – ‘Lake of Light’
Rare Seed is the solo recording project of New Orleans based multi-instrumentalist, Lex Condes. During the lockdown in 2020 after the hiatus of his previous band leafdrinker, Lex begun composing and recording dormant ideas. Take a little Ween, a little Thee Oh Sees, then add a healthy dose of ’60s Tropicália with the subdued sensibilities of Deerhunter, and you have the sonic gumbo that is Rare Seed. Surreal and whimsical at times, psychedelic and heavy at others, Rare Seed maintains a conscious and deliberate ebb and flow through his showcasing of biting guitars, dripping synths and pounding rhythms.
