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.
Working up ideas for a new range of posters etc for The Nene Valley. Trying to develop the previous branding a little with a slightly gentler headline font, I also like the random little touch of dropping that word there too….
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::::
So here is the Northamptonshire Food and Drink guide I think I’ve mentioned on here recently. Pretty please with how this came out…. There is a second cover which I will share shortly too… both covers feature photography from this guy who is beyond awesome.
You can pick it up in all kinds of food and drink places in Northamptonshire now.
Really loving the new fan feature that Bandcamp have just rolled out.
Essentially it means that whenever I pick up new releases it adds it to my collection and shows my followers what I’ve been listening to. From a label point of view it means that when people pick up our releases, those fans will be promoting us to their friends…
Its a neat little add and one that I think opens up loads of cool social elements… Cant wait to see how it develops.
In the meantime you can check out some recent purchases over here.
