Slugger Lays has returned with the release of their new single “Try Again,” a dynamic journey that builds upon an offbeat syncopated motif. With a searing repeating melody the song builds to a dramatic unison chorus punctuated by satisfying hits and breaks by the rhythm section. A gentle, B3 organ moment builds through the form giving way to explosive guitar licks that finally segue to the triumphant reprise. Again, Slugger creates their own world and takes the listener on a trip that is both challenging and exciting.


In early 2017, acclaimed New Orleans drummer Terrence “Groove Guardian” Houston was looking for inspiration. Already in the midst of a successful career that included work with The Funky Meters and George Porter Jr’s own projects, Houston knew it was time to find a sound of his own. He contacted bassist Noah Young, known as a member of post-jazz powerhouse Naughty Professor. What started as a few casual jam sessions in Houston’s practice space in a storage facility soon became the beginnings of a new project. Young tapped childhood friend and guitarist Max Bronstein, a relative new-comer to the city, to join in on several writing and recording sessions. When the group added keyboardist Joe Johnson- one of the masterminds behind international sensation Tank and the Bangas- the quartet knew they had something special.
