Founding Soulive and Lettuce guitarist Eric Krasno has shared a trippy music video for "Curse Lifter" that goes through a virtual swampland. Watch it above.
The instrumental track is from Krasno's 2016 solo album, Blood From A Stone, and features slide guitarist extraordinaire Derek Trucks. Eric shared with Guitar World some insight about "Curse Lifter:"
"Curse Lifter" is an homage to Santana, the Allman Brothers Band, and some of the bands I grew up listening to... I’ve always loved guitar harmonies when they’re done the right way. After we recorded the rhythm tracks and listened back, I knew it would be great to have Derek Trucks play on it. We recorded at his studio and just mic’d up two amps in the live room and went for it.
As you'll hear, there's a heavy Latin influence in the track, with rolling percussion, warm organ, and free flowing guitar riffs from Krasno and Trucks. Being masterful guitar players in their own right, the two have a great chemistry when playing together, and "Curse Lifter" exemplifies that.
Eric also shared a comment about the video with Live For Live Music:
I’m excited to share this psychedelic video for "Curse Lifter." The animation takes you through an abstract journey that I thought fit well with the track. I was excited to have Derek Trucks join me on this tune. He is close friend and one of my absolute favorite guitar players.
