BADU Out Today!

We spent three years, countless late nights, early mornings, and god knows how many versions of these songs to put this album together. It's finally out today, and ready to listen to in it's entirety.

Making albums these days seems like somewhat of a psychotic thing to do, but then when you realize you actually get to release it into the world for people to hear and enjoy and feel, it becomes pretty clear why we make them. Thank you to everyone who made it possible for us to make this, and who plays an equal role in bringing this music to life. Here it is, have a listen. Please enjoy. 

Badu // Album Teaser II

Our album BADU is out this Friday. We couldn't be more excited to finally share this collection of work that we've put so much energy into over the last few years. You can Pre-Order BADU now through the Last Gang Records website, and it will also be available on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music and everywhere else you fund music these days. 

Here is Our New Song 'Badu'

When thinking back about the process of making this song, it was a real turning point in the creation of our album. After our first album came out, we were forced to completely rethink how we would make our second record, as the band had gone from a little project made in our bedrooms, to something that had to follow up that initial success. We struggled through the first half of making our record, not really knowing what we wanted to say or where we wanted to take the music. It often felt forced or rushed. We were in the studio late one night, and after smoking a joint, we went back to track this song live off the floor, with the percussion and backing tracks playing behind us. The drums, guitar, bass, and Rhodes were all played live as one take in a room together. The half time breakdown at the end of the song was improvised, and at the end of that take we were all high fiving in the room together. It felt natural, organic, and straight from the heart. We hope you have as much fun listening to it as we did making it.
