Good Album, Stunning Failure in Inventory...?
I downloaded Distant Lands of the Heart without even finishing the demo--not only did it sound great, but it also seemed to be right up Bonobo's Alley. Yet based on the sound, it seemed to be from older Bonobo albums so the release date was strange. But then I came to find out that this is not Bonobo. I'd understand if this was a band of the same name, but the other band is called Lotus. I'd understand if they had the wrong cover for this album, (e.g. the cover for "Animal Magic") but even the album cover's been changed to match the f*ck up. Either someone's been sleepwalking or they figured this was a better way to sell Lotus' music. Others suspect that this is neither Bonobo nor Lotus, and that someone's trying to cash in or be subversive...Either way, I guess it's worked. Check it out; file under Lotobus
