Todd Clouser

Another musician reared in Twin Cities jazz clubs achieving stardom abroad with a decidedly non-jazzy sound  – see also: José James and, to a certain extent, the Bad Plus – Todd Clouser is gearing up for a big international push behind the new release by his psychedelic trio, A Love Electric.

Renowned keyboard grinder John Medeski of Medeski, Martin & Wood fame joined the group during the recording of the album, and Grammy winner Patrick Dillett (David Byrne & St. Vincent, Soul Coughing) mixed the results. Titled “Son of a Hero,” the record is due Sept. 16 on Ropeadope Records. A video for the first single, “Be the Evolution,” is posted below.

Now based in Mexico City, Clouser is in town this week with A Love Electric to preview the album at Harriet Brewing on Thursday (9 p.m.). They will be back in town on the full tour for an Icehouse gig on Oct. 3.
