Original 1990s Morphine band members Dana Colley (baritone sax) and Jerome Deupree(drums) formed Vapors of Morphine with transplanted New Orleans’ blues guitarist &vocalist Jeremy Lyons over a decade ago. In 2019 upon Jerome's departure Boston area drummer Tom Arey joined the band. They continue to seduce audiences with dreamy soundscapes applying inventive arrangements to the unique instrumentation of electric baritone saxophone (evocative of Jimi Hendrix’

guitar) the Sandman-style 2string slide bass or electric guitar forged around mad jazz-rockdrums. A typical Vapors of Morphine show encompasses the noire-tinged Beat generation influences of the Morphine era sound you’ll likely hear some Morphine originals Delta blues heady African beats and the psychedelic jams that continue to entrance audiences young and old. A mutual passion for experimental and exotic music pervades Vapors of Morphine's sound and continues to win them acclaim across the USA Europe Russia and South America.

The latest album from The Suitcase Junket, Mean Dog, Trampoline is populated by characters in various states of reverie: leaning on jukeboxes, loitering on dance floors, lying on the bottoms of empty swimming pools in the sun. Despite being deeply attuned to the chaos of the world, singer/songwriter/ multi instrumentalist Matt Lorenz imbues those moments with joyful wonder, an endless infatuation with life. And as it's songs alight on everything from Joan Jett to moonshine to runaway kites, Mean Dog, Trampoline makes an undeniable case for infinite curiosity as a potent antidote to jadedness and despair.

Produced by Steve Berlin (Jackie Greene, Rickie Lee Jones, Leo Kottke) of Los Lobos, Mean Dog, Trampoline marks a deliberate departure from the self produced, homespun approach of The Suitcase Junket's previous efforts. In creating the album, Lorenz pulled from a fantastically patchwork sonic palette, shaping his songs with elements of jangly folk, fuzzed out blues, oddly textured psych rock. Engineered by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Speedy Ortiz) and mixed by Vance Powell (Jack White, Houndmouth), Mean Dog, Trampoline rightly preserves The Suitcase Junket's unkempt vitality, but ultimately emerges as his most powerfully direct album so far.
