Warmth and intimacy from The Flavr Blue’s ‘Love Notes’

“Seasons change, mad things rearrange,” sang Lauryn Hill on The Fugees’ “How Many Mics.”

That message is appropriate for another trio born out of hip-hop, Seattle’s The Flavr Blue — Hollis Wong-Wear (lately with Macklemore), Lace Cadence and Parker Joe — who celebrate the release of their romantic EP, “Love Notes,” Thursday (Dec. 17) at Chop Suey.

Though the three musicians came from hip-hop, on the new album they are rebelling from the four-on-the-floor, boom-bap of rap and embracing a more spacious sound, with reverb guitars and big synthesizer swells.
