SiP is the Chicago-based musical project of keyboard player Jimmy Lacy. His most personal project to date, SiP, brings over a decade of wild synthesizer playing, drawing from electronic, jazz, ambient, and folk traditions. Described by a friend of the group as “bohemian electronics” SiP performs with synths, drumboxes, and loose percussion, creating a mental space to focus inward or outward, community with ourselves and others.
This release pulls from live recordings taken during a month-long ‘happy hour’ residency at well-regarded Chicago cocktail lounge the Whistler during the month of October 2017. Mastered to cassette and presented here, 'Live at the Whistler' has real warmth, saturated tones and sonic swirls to get lost in just as melodies resurface to bring you back. At the residency new work was debuted each week, with several pieces becoming staples of the SiP set to this day.
SiP will be releasing another live recording of a Chicago radio set in the coming months, followed by a fall release of a debut LP.
