My Favorite Record

Asylum Street Spankers

The Spankers' fifth full-length release is music about loving music. Declaring that the best music is funny, joyful, moving and adventurous, the world's greatest all-acoustic band loaded the album with musical and lyrical references to their favorite records.

Full Description

The Spankers' fifth full-length release is music about loving music. Declaring that the best music is funny, joyful, moving and adventurous, the world's greatest all-acoustic band loaded the album with musical and lyrical references to their favorite records.

Through a startling variety of styles and forms, the Spankers embed every detail with their singular mix of wit, musicianship and deep affection for music of all kinds.

It also features our favorite song EVER ("Whatever") about a guy who will do ANYTHING to get the girl. And it mentions Camus. Quite a feat.

Short Description
  • Armed with the best brace of originals in their career, Austin's acoustic iconoclasts make a record that moves them far beyond anything so restrictive as 'genre'.
