TMP140 Simon Lott: Context Killer

The colorful drummer, composer, and arranger switches styles as easily as he changes crop-tops. His two new albums under the Context Killer and Diamond Kinkade monikers add live-looping avant funk and ambient piano and synth soundscapes to the straight-ahead jazz and funk he’s been known for. Simon has always liked to stretch the boundaries of musical forms and identity. If things get kinky, that’s fine with him. After his visit with the Troubled Men, he should feel more emboldened than ever. Topics include weight gain, letting go, the inauguration, a Lil Wayne pardon, DNA evidence, Jen Psaki, an inoculation monologue, new music, a chronofile, a close call, high school, Bobby Campo, Frank Williams, a first record, the drums, Johnny Vidacovich, a symphonic family, David Torkanowsky, George Porter, John Bonham, musical nutrients, critical thinking, ego, Lyrics Born, DJ Logic, Nels Cline, favorite countries, a Joan Rivers haunting, Sandra Bernhard, perception, a noise set, Eno, Phil Spector, and much more.
