about

Featured here is the newly REMASTERED Let's Build a Roof [KLP213], including five DIGITAL-ONLY bonus songs: new mixes of “Gravel” (mixed by Nicholas Wilbur); “Loose Wind” (mixed by Stephen Steinbrink); “Don’t Give Up" (mixed by Daniel Ledwell), an early mix of “Christmas Island”; and a previously unreleased recording from the album session, “Let’s Get Together.”

LAKE's 2009 album Let's Build a Roof [KLP213], produced by Northwest legend Karl Blau, is sweet, funky and nostalgic – a paragon of psychedelic pop. Originally, this landmark album had overlooked sonic anomalies now corrected by REMASTERING. Five bonus songs have been added to the DIGITAL ALBUM, creating a whole new Let’s Build a Roof.

Let's Build a Roof is LAKE’s most popular album with many fan favorites, though every track is unique. After extensive touring in 2009, LAKE entered Dub Narcotic Studio (Olympia, Wash.) to record fresh with their live energy. In the studio they were able to fill out their jingly pop aesthetic, enhanced with the vintage sounds of instruments available at Dub Narcotic and the local community. Blazing synth solos, timpani, flutes, saxophones, cello, and marimba, are just some of the featured sounds on Let’s Build a Roof.
Some of the album’s most requested songs: "Madagascar," a dubby, slow-groove track; "Christmas Island" a surfy Phil Spector-sounding song used as theme music for the television in show Adventure Time; and “Don’t Give Up”, an upbeat motivating dance song with Blau performing the hook on harmonized saxophones; “Gravel” is the first single and has that a driving intensity that we can all deeply relate to – trying to keep up.
