tyler and zak of greatest hits (along w/ sam of outer limits recordings et al.) stopped by our radio show last week, in high spirits and with plenty of material in tow. specifically: their entire new freak funk boy 7″, new raw thrills jam “whole lotta lovin”, a brand new sweethearts tune performed by the happy healthy boys (sweethearts (zak + sam)+tyler), live fave “L train girl”, harry nilsson and sparks covers, and more. the recording came straight from their mixer, “demented and filled with sentiment.”
this recording offers a first listen of a bunch of new material, and stands as a snapshot of an incredibly prolific and wacky corner of the musical landscape at their most comfortable and impassioned. many thanks to them for delivering such a packed, well-planned set.
