One of the 2014 records that I spun the most was Father/Daughter Records Faux Real compilation. Subtitled “Faux Songs by Real Bands” it was a collection of bands doing their own take on songs from bands that only exist in movies and TV shows. I thought it was a fantastic concept and everyone really came through in putting together a great record full of really fun songs.
This is the second volume in the series and I have to say I am super excited to see what Father/Daughter have put together for us this year. Krill is covering a Billy Madison song. Sharpless is playing perhaps the greatest song ever written in the English language, “Franz Kafka” from the TV show Home Movies. I put parts of the original on mixtapes all the time. Am I allowed to talk about mixtapes here?
This is a preorder for an April 28 release. If you are in New York then you should know that Father/Daughter will also be hosting a Faux Real II record release show at the Palisades in Brooklyn. Bellows, Small Wonder, Rivergazer, and Sharpless will all be playing. Sharpless is going to play “Franz Kafka” live! I hope someone films that for me. Thanks. I appreciate it.
