Brand new sealed double live album from Fat Freddy's Drop.
Last year, Fat Freddy’s Drop released an album, Lock-In, recorded live at the Michael Fowler Centre with no audience present.
Their next, Wairunga, due for digital release on August 20, is another audience-free live album, this one recorded in the bush at Wairunga in Hawke’s Bay.
The seven-piece taped the five new tracks and two re-recorded classics – Bones and Wairunga Blues –in a single session, and said the “wild weather elements” played an important role in the creative process.
“We were definitely at the mercy of the elements there and the elements let us get away with it”, said trumpeter Toby Laing, aka Tony Chang, who has played in Fat Freddy’s Drop since its inception in 1999.
