Baby Teeth Release Online EP…

BABY TEETH RELEASE ONLINE CHICAGO-CENTRIC EP

It would be fitting enough to just be excited about Baby Teeth’s upcoming Lujo release, The Simp, but when the band rolls out a web-only EP full of songs that are covers of their fellow Chicago-based artists, we think it’s time to flip out. We Live Here is the name of the EP and it came about as a way for the band to pay tribute to their hometown. The band covers Joanna Newsom, Liz Phair, and Curtis Mayfield, they even sneak in a couple of collaborations with Bobby Conn and Kelly Hogan so that the rich history of Chicago is represented and respected.

The band’s entire EP is just a quick scroll down from here and is available for download in its entirety, enjoy and feel free to post up all of the songs!

We Live Here EP

______________________________________________
-Bad Weather feat. Kelly Hogan-
Having written this song in a late-night drunken haze, Abraham initially dismissed it as a genre exercise. But later, realizing it had genuine feeling in it, he convinced alt-country legend Kelly Hogan to come in and lay down a stunning co-lead vocal. During the session, Hogan kept apologizing for her performance — as if she were doing anything less than burning down the place.
______________________________________________
– Saint James Infirmary/Six Foot One –
Another Abraham home recording, setting the blues chestnut “Saint James Infirmary” and the Liz Phair’s “Six Foot One” together in a medley. Decades apart though they are, the two songs share a yearning, haunted spirit.
______________________________________________
– Fool For You –
Re-imagining the Impressions soul stomper as a psychedelic mind-meld, Abraham constructed this dose of keyboard mania at home.
_____________________________________________
– Sarah feat. Bobby Conn-
A slow-burning collaboration among Bobby Conn, his longtime partner Julie Pomerleau, and Abraham. Bobby and Julie worked on the track and then, having hit a wall, passed it on to Abraham, who laid down a vocal melody and lyrics shortly thereafter. Bobby came back into the studio to record the sinuous duet lead vocal.

– I’ll have a review up for Baby Teeth‘s The Simp next week. It’s an interesting record to say the least.
