Fresh off an extensive run on RX Bandits’ farewell tour, Zechs Marquise have announced their sophomore full-length, ‘Getting Paid.’ The new album will feature keyboardist and trumpeter Rikardo Rodriguez-Lopez’s first recorded appearance with the band, as well as guest performances by Sonny Baker and RX Bandits’ Matt Embree.
“We started off recording percussion to sequencers and loops,” drummer Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez explained about the new album’s recording process. “I chopped those sounds up and arranged them. From there, were wrote the album with each of us coming in and playing on top of it. Kind of like a hip-hop song.”
Speaking of the album’s artwork, bassist Marfred Rodriguez-Lopez said, “The album cover is a play on Blacksploitation soundtrack art and stuff like [Miles Davis’] ‘Bitches Brew’ cover. We wanted our own weird take on it.”
