New Active Listener Records Release - The Autumn Stone's Bee-Sides from Beautiful Freaks
We were big fans of The Autumn Stone's debut album "Beautiful Freaks" when it was released last year.
""Beautiful Freaks" doesn't have a lot in common with the glossy psychedelia of 2014. Instead it nestles comfortably at the feet of albums like "The Soft Bulletin", "Deserter's Songs" and "Good Morning Spider" - classics of a certain vintage that scale near unreachable heights..." (full review here).
So when we discovered that the duo of James Cassidy and Syd Lane had an E.P of outtakes looking for a home, we were happy to open our door to them.
"Bee-Sides from Beautiful Freaks" is a free / name your own price three track E.P featuring covers of Big Star's "Holocaust", Patti Page's "The Tennessee Waltz", and one original, "Ray's Lament".
You can download the E.P below, and if you like what you hear, check out the debut here.
