T:Lo 'Leave It At The Door' EP
Six track mini album Leave It At The Door - released under the moniker T:Lo - is a lo fi ambient folk collaboration between Lo Carmen and the mysterious Kristyna, creatively partner on multiple art/music projects, including filming the classic music video for My Friends Call Me Foxy and contributing her unique guitar stylings to Carmen’s first three solo albums.
Some copies were given to friends and that was that. But T: Lo’s soft charms, creaking doors and candid lyrics struck a nerve and at the urging of various peers, Carmen took the raw mixes to champion indie producer Tony Dupe (Holly Throsby, Saddleback) at his famed rustic South Coast digs, where he worked a little studio magic and added some ghostly piano touches of his own.
However, the timing for releasing it never seemed right so it continued to gather metaphorical dust in the ol’ bottom drawer – until Carmen decided to begin to clear the decks of all unreleased material, with T: Lo’s Leave It At The Door first on the rather long list.
