Misery Marmalade and Other Spanish Jams
Our second CD, released in summer 2010 and featuring Gus Warriner, Mike Park, Sophie Mackinder and Imogen Commander as Discover Artists. This album is mostly an acoustic affair of guitars and cellos, although we drift into reggae and rock towards the back half. We’re rather pleased with the fact that the first four songs have four different lead vocals, and that Sat Out the 15th is the first song we have produced to feature both beat boxing and a cello as the main instruments. And, of course, there’s Gus-who kicks off the album with his very own Fairy Tale.
Their music can be labeled as poppy rock folk, with some forays into hip-hop and beatboxing. It may sound as “free-for-all” grab bag of songs at first, but all songs share the fun of a DIY approach that simmers through lick and chord. It’s like being invited to a mad tea party with music, with the musicians pulling rabbits out of their instruments.
