[Inspired by Talking Heads Music and their own]
  In the summer of 2013 a group of Portland, Oregon musicians got together around the love of Talking Heads music. Especially that of the epic1984 concert film, Stop Making Sense, which they consider to be the most brilliant concert film of all time. They began to perform with a 7-piece lineup that was inspired by that particular movie and time period. “There was so much funkiness, movement, and excitement to the music in that movie and we just knew it would get people excited and feel fresh” says Lawrence Orleck, founder and singer in the band.

Audiences keep coming back to see LDW. Not only for their exuberant interpretations of the legendary Talking Heads, but also for their original music, improvisation, choreography and the random experiences they deliver at every one of their shows. In a matter of 2 years they were playing to sold out shows all over the west coast and found themselves with the question: “What’s next?”

The upcoming EP – Movement in a spirited manner. Vol 1.

For LDW, every performance matters and needs to evolve, and, it’s that mantra that has them in the studio recording their first vinyl EP, Movement in a spirited manner Vol 1. “We were so inspired by playing David Byrne’s music for 3 years that we found ourselves in the studio writing this EP and it just naturally fit into our set. That’s our evolution and trajectory. But, yes, we still play a ton of talking heads because, plain and simple, it’s fun.”
The new EP is Vol. 1 of a three part series of EP’s that LDW plans to release. “The album format is so flexible these days and, frankly, a bit irrelevant so we decided to just do these two sided vinyl EP’s with 4 songs each. This first one will be coming out February 2018. We named it Movement ina spirited manner because for the last 3 years we have been enthralled with the excitement and motion of our fans. They get down, big time.” Lawrence muses.

Stop Making Sense performances:
“We also thought it would be an incredible adventure to puttogether, periodically, the actual Stop Making Sense performance. It’s aconcept that starts with ostensibly no stage setup and out comes David Byrnewith a beatbox and and an acoustic. The stage slowly builds to a fullperformance as the players and gear ebb onto the stage – until a mid showclimax with Byrne in a giant suit. It's great fun to honor the performance thatwas the nucleus for this project.”
