The New RockRoll Cosmology , the debut EP from OOLALA, the Greatest Space RockRoll Band in the Universe, is a heavy, funk-riffy, vocally virtuosic masterpiece. This cinematic collection of tracks draws on influences as diverse as psychedelic jazz, stadium glitter rock, and heavy soul, while offering themes both universal and personal—from lead single “Falling Out of the Universe,” a bombastic spiral through a black hole into that unknown realm beyond our earthly comprehension, to “Get Yo Ass In That Space Camaro,” a phase-y, hook-laden howler about a domestic space relationship gone wrong.
It’s all born from spontaneous jams—captured in the moment, often on iPhones, produced at Retro City Studios in Philadelphia by Rumi Kitchen and Tim Sonnefeld (Usher, Mary J Blige, Dixie Hummingbirds), and mastered by Fred Kevorkian at Avatar Studios in New York City.
The New RockRoll Cosmology release features a limited-edition run of 500 deluxe, hand-numbered, random-color 12” vinyl LPs packaged in gold foil. Following The Giving Groove’s “artist-friendly, socially conscious” model of donating one half of all profits to music charities, OOLALA will donate 50 percent of its album proceeds to MusiCares, which was established by the Recording Academy to provide a safety net of critical assistance for music makers in times of need.
Limited edition of 500. Hand numbered with gold foil cover and random color 45 RPM vinyl. Pressed with love at Gotta Groove, Cleveland, Ohio.
