The new band from Joey Cape (Lagwagon, Bad Astronaut) has finally taken shape. The Playing Favorites will release their debut album, I Remember When I Was Pretty in December via Suburban Home. Why isn’t this label sending me promos yet? Anyway, if these first two songs are any indication, this album will be making my year end list. Crunchy, melodic pop music that reminds me of The Jealous Sound (whatever happened to that band?).
From the Suburban Home website:
The album will be in stores on December 4th, but CHECK this out, if you pre-order the album in either CD or Vinyl format, we will send you the ENTIRE digital album as DRM-free mp3s on November 20th.
There are 3 colors of vinyl available (Pink/Blue color within a color, Pink/Blue half and half, and a blue w/ white speckles). All are going to look amazing. We are offering 25 sets of all 3 colors where the band will be signing copies of one of the records. Pretty sweet!
I am going for the blue with white speckles I think. Check out the songs below.
