    Summary

    Dinner At The Thompson's, comprised of New York-born, California-raised, and France-based singer Lucille Tee and Le Havre, France-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Fablive, is excited to announce the release of their new album, Off The Grid. A mix of smoky, jazz-, soul-, and spoken word-influenced vocals with hip-hop-, funk-, and electro-influenced beats, Off The Grid, which also features Guilty Simpson, Lee Fields, and The Magic Bunch, will be released May 17, 2011 on Earth At Work Records via FB Distribution.

    Clocking in at 16 tracks, the Dinner At The Thompsons' sophomore album boasts a variety of genre-swapping tracks that showcase the duo's penchant for the creative. The lead singles "It All Began" and "Running" adequately display the group's diversity. The former begins with a bevy of sirens and before moving the listener with a steady infectious bass line, complimentary percussion and muffled keys, and tales of seedy underworld characters, courtesy of Lucille's story telling. The latter, in contrast, is a frenetic, string- and horn-driven track that races along, as Lucille's lyrics "Quest for that special something/ Keeps him running, keeps him running," spin a tale of the never-ending search for fulfillment. Previously released exclusively in France and Germany in late 2010, Off The Grid has already garnered amazing reviews and was played on Nova (Paris), Radio Eins (Berlin), BBC 6 (UK), and even snuck onto KCRW's Top 50 Charts here in the US at #6.

    Dinner At The Thompsons' got its start in 2005 when Fablive's band was playing a show in France and Lucille, then living in Prague, hopped up on stage to sing with the group. The chemistry that then ensued was so powerful that Fablive ended up inviting Lucille to the studio with him and the three songs they laid down during the session became the start of their first album, Lifetime on Planet Earth. Now, four years later, Off The Grid offers listeners a logical extension of the sounds heard on their debut LP while continuing to push boundaries and defy genre.

    With the release of Off The Grid, Dinner At The Thompson's has plans to hit the road, first taking their new collection of songs across stages in Europe this month and then in the US in late May. "This album was something I've wanted to do for a long time. The concept was to mix DATT's diverse musical influences of rare-groove, jazz-funk, hip-hop, soul & nu-beat to create a unique universe of sounds, moods, and ideas," says Fablive.
