Now That’s What I Call Music (That I Don’t Particularly Care For): IS DONE AND FINISHED AND HOORAY.
A while back, I asked a bunch of my friends to record covers of their least favorite songs. Other people found out about it, and now we have 34 covers. PRETTY GNARLY. Anyway, here they are. The challenge was not to be a dick about it, and I think we may have succeeded? Some of these are really amazing, and some are not the greatest, but HEY, who cares? FYI, Track order has nothing to do with my personal preference. Thanks to everyone who submitted. THIS IS SO SILLY.
Hey friends. Our compilation of “least favorite songs” is taking a bit longer than expected to get done (WE GOT 40 SUBMISSIONS, and that seriously is a lot of stuff for Ted to master), so until then, here’s something to tide you over. It’s a cover of a song we love! Also, if you download it from our Bandcamp, you get a very special bonus track.
Lazy Acre is super super proud to announce that (in collaboration with our handsome friends at Alcopop Records) we will be shortly releasing a new album from one of our favourite bands The Crimea.
Its fair to say that we here on Lazy Acre have been in love with this band since we first saw Davey singing about Baby Booms and Lottery Winners on Acid years back at the Shepherds Bush Empire. To be able to release this new album (which is coming out on super sexy double 12” vinyl) is a genuine honour and we are stoked to be working with the awe-inspiring Alcopop to bring it to you.
As well as the album, the band are set to return this summer with a slot at 2000 Trees festival and a headline show at The Jazz Café in London.
Based around the lovelorn lyrics of Davey McManus, Square Moon is a dazzling technicolour tour de force through woozy pop, ragged folk and desolate piano led tracks – best exemplified by the track LAST PLANE OUT OF SAIGON which can be heard here::::
We’ve put out a lot of tunes in the past year. Some are really fun, and some are not as fun. We felt bad that you had to wade through so many EPs and albums, and splits to get to the songs we most often play, so I decided to put together this little sampler with some “fan-favorites”, some of my favorites, and other stuff(?)
