Description

“Delightful... slick without being soulless - a neat trick if you can pull it off!”  – STEVE LAMACQ (BBC 6MUSIC/R2)  

“This is really nice” JOHN KENNEDY (XFM)  

“I think this is fantastic” GUY GARVEY (BBC 6MUSIC/ELBOW)  

“Infuriatingly catchy pop...Hits the spot”JOHN LEWIS, UNCUT

“Lanu and Washington are a match made in heaven." - MARIE CLAIRE MAGAZINE 

This third single release from Lanu’s acclaimed ‘Her 12 Faces’ album brings the limelight to rest on the beautifully folksy “Roosevelt Blues” featuring Megan Washington, an infectiously fanciful and evocative song telling imagined tales of soirees spent rubbing shoulders with ghosts of gangsters and Charlie Chaplin at the eponymous LA hotel. Inspired by a US DJ tour taken by Lance Ferguson (aka Lanu), “Roosevelt Blues” is as much a product of the crazy urban legends and history he delighted in soaking up, as of the records he delighted in buying, digging into both the crates and the culture of America’s West Coast.

 Perfectly complementing the leftfield folk stylings of the lead track, this release also brings a set of four absolutely beautiful new acoustic versions of other songs from the album. All voiced by Washington, the tracks reworked here include the two previous singles, “Beautiful Trash” and “Fall”; plus “Hold Me Down”, a modern twist on a heart-rending Bacharach-style ballad; and the delicate, lo fi indie/electronica of “Wire”, transformed by glorious finger-picked guitar in this incarnation. The latter three are exclusive and previously unreleased.

All of our MP3's are 320kbps.
