Baron von Weasel Music is proud to announce the release of a limited-edition compilation featuring all four Baron Bands!
The Singing Bird Sessions is a compilation of songs from Sordid Ordeal, The Balls, DevilMonkey and Australian Kingswood Factory as you have never heard them before! This unique album features an exclusive original track by each band, and an interpretation of a favourite track from the other bands’ back catalogues. We set this challenge to the bands not knowing quite what we’d get, and sweet sweet jeebus did they rise to it!
Recorded in just two days at Singing Bird studios in Frankston, we were blown away by how each band respectfully massaged the songs into their own styles. Commenting during the recording session, AKF said they particularly wanted to get a fun take on DevilMonkey’s “industrial sonicscapes”, and hope that DevilMonkey appreciate the “whack percussion” added by Carlos, who we’ve never seen so happy as when he found the vibra-slap in the studio! Each band said the challenge of taking the other bands’ songs and remaining true to them while making them their own was heaps of fun, and for us best thing was watching the bands hear the rough cuts of the covers of their material for the first time!
