Garden Grow

Patricia Lim

There is…hesitancy with your AMM host on doing this, but the day and the occasion call for it, so…

The force is strong with this one.

Kalu and The Electric Joint’s Garden of Eden was due for release in 2020, but that was around the time all hell broke loose, to put it mildly. The album would have to wait. However, that wasn’t about to stop the music completely. The band released a few singles along the way, including two from the album, “Like, Maybe” and the title track. As the world gradually began to reopen, they took the time to revisit these songs written before the pandemic to show them some extra love. As Kalu James explained to KUTX Music Editor Jeff McCord in a recent Music Matters column, “…we took advantage of that and really kept at it at a time when there was nothing coming in money-wise or anything like that. We engaged the band and kept rehearsing.”

Garden of Eden is now ready for the world, via Spaceflight Records. And Kalu & The Electric Joint will celebrate with a grand release show tonight, Thursday May 4, at The Paramount Theater. Doors at 7 p.m., and artist Kam Franklin (The Suffers) opens the show. Plus…the AMM has it on good authority that a very special guest star will join Kalu and the band for a couple of songs. Don’t miss it.
