‘Superette’ is the debut album from revered bassist and composer Chris Lightcap’s electrifying experimental band of the same name featuring guitarists Curtis Hasselbring and Jonathan Goldberger and drummer Dan Rieser, along with special guests Nels Cline and John Medeski. A recording for those who seek genre-defying exploration in music, Lightcap and company fearlessly guide the listener through soundscapes of surf, harmolodics, Mali-trance, psych and beyond, delivering a riveting sonic journey. Hear and share the album’s first single “Djali” here, which is out today on all digital streaming and download services.

“Ever since I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with the electric guitar,” says Lightcap, explaining the impetus behind ‘Superette.’ “From the first moment I heard the opening chords of [Elton John’s] ‘Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)’ at three years old, I knew I was hooked.”

That watershed moment eventually led Lightcap to begin playing music in his own right. He cut his teeth as an electric bass player with a slew of teenage garage bands, ultimately leading to his discovery of the upright bass, jazz and improvised music, which culminated with a move to New York City in the early ’90s. Since then, Chris has lent his creative vision to an impressively wide array of prominent artists in jazz and beyond, including Regina Carter, Glen Hansard, Marc Ribot and Cecil Taylor. For the past 15 years he has also led Bigmouth, whose last two releases were mainstays of countless year-end “best of” lists, including the New York Times, NPR and JazzTimes.
