Firebrand frontwoman Maggie Morrison has kept a low profile since her beloved local synth-pop duo Lookbook called it a day two years ago. Well, the wait is now officially over, as this Turf Club show marks the debut of LaLiberte, a new collaborative effort featuring Morrison, Doomtree's Cecil Otter, and Votel member Ben Clark. At this early juncture, very little is officially known about the band. Will Morrison dip her toes back into Lookbook's crystal-clear '80s-copping waters? Will Otter rap alongside her? All that's been revealed thus far is a single Bandcamp demo called "Kelis." The gently pulsating and slightly menacing electro dirge doesn't really go anywhere musically, but remains riveting thanks mostly to Morrison's compelling vocal performance.
