“No Paperwork is the soundtrack to being a starving artist in transition, but still moving to the beat of your own drum and keeping it about the music…”—L.A.Z on his new solo release.
Clear Soul Forces member L.A.Z puts the pedal to the metal on his newest release which is the 6 track EP titled “No paperwork“. As the title suggests, L.A.Z is free of label hassles and restrictions hence going the extra mile in crafting this short but heavy body of work.
He further explains that“The EP is my reminder to myself and my family that you can’t put a price tag or a time limit on finding peace of mind,”. With such a crystal clear mind frame, what he delivers is nothing but solid fried gold.
That much is evident when you hear the fittingly titled opener, “Celestial Vibes,” which kicks things off on a spaced-out and meditative tip. From there, L.A.Z showcases his keen ear for production, while balancing clever wordplay with his well-structured narrative. You pick up on his frustrations and self-realizations throughout the project, particularly on the f*ck-the-world banger, “Optomist” featuring Detroit’s GooD Greene. And even when he’s getting stoned on lead single “TGI Fried Daze” with Denver’s F Dot Lawless, there’s the sobering realness to it all
There’s no questioning that L.A.Z took a massive chance in leaving everything behind to focus on his art, and it would have been easy for him to let his frustrations fuel his creative side. But he’s instead found an important balance, combining blunted escapism with real-world trials, while emerging through it all as a stronger artist, and a more self aware human being. He’s found the peace of mind he was searching for. No Paperwork is now available through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms, via Below System Records.
