Loving Losing the Second Album by People vs Larsen Featuring Guitarist Tom Larsen to be released on OneTrickDog* Records
New York, NY (December 8, 2015) New York City blues/rock band People vs Larsen is pleased to announce the release of their powerful new album, Loving Losing on OneTrickDog* Records on January 12, 2016. The title track marks a departure from the more traditional blues of the band’s eponymous first album, but continues to explore the boundaries of Delta-inspired blues. The track is a heartfelt ballad that displays the melodic, often seductive guitar riffs and haunting vocals of frontman/composer Tom Larsen. It was debuted on KCRW FM, Los Angeles by long-tenured DJ Chris Douridas, and has been played daily since May. Douridas described the single as a “deeply soulful show-stopper. Went into heavy rotation immediately.” The band’s second album features the addition of renowned Crosby, Stills & Nash organist Todd Caldwell and showcases the incredible breadth of Larsen’s compositional and arranging prowess. From the massive, layered arrangement of Feist’s There’s a Limit to Your Love, to the gritty, hard-charging blues/rock groove of One More Time; from the funk-infused brass sounds of Big Leg Woman, to the poignant, lush colors and counterlines of When I Call You, or the haunting, virtuosic intimacy of acoustic tracks such as Josephine, Loving Losing is truly a complete record from start to finish.
