On the opening track Outside/In, Laneous & The Family Yah set out to explain their sound, we ain’t no funk band, we ain’t no reggae band, we ain’t no rock band, which basically helps none whatsoever! The best way to describe Laneous’ sound is a combination of smooth jazz, 70s funk, psychedelic pop and driven guitar rock. Think Mr. Bungle on Ritalin or Regurgitator on an acid trip. It’s a conglomerate of sounds cleverly crafted to create eccentric music for people left of centre. Themes of animals (lead single I Am Dog) and sex linger throughout this album (Got Dream, Ode To The Code). And this album certainly is engaging. There is something that exudes ultra cool about Laneous & The Family Yah. Their second album is an aural assault on the ears, but it’s a pleasurable experience.
Laneous & The Family Yah is with Ysk Lightspeed Chamber and 9 others.
The debut single Modern Romance was unleashed in October 2018 with a kinky, captivating visual accompaniment that marked the return of the Laneous legacy.
Опубликовано: 7 мар. 2011 г. In 2011, Laneous will have their 8th, 9th & 10th official releases as they continue THE FOUND THINGS COLLECTION, 3 x EP's of brand new material to compliment their critically acclaimed album FOUND THINGS.
Laneous & The Family Yah make Mutant Soul and Croon Punk for your earholes. Alternatively cheerful, smooth and demented, James ‘Laneous’ Lane navigates his band through fiercely syncopated, occasionally bombast and otherwise wobbly grooves with his trademark falsetto croon and charming hip hop murmurs. L&TFY breathe, eat, shit, and vomit music. With a staggering 9 releases (Paper EP is Out in January) including 2 acclaimed albums, it is fair to say that they are amongst the most prolific artists in Australia. 2011 sees them release their Found Things Collection. Consisting of 3 x EP's, The ‘Scissors’ (1st), ‘Paper’ (2nd), ‘Rock’ (3rd) series will see L&TFY dismantle and explore the many musical ideas on ‘Found Things’, one EP at a time. Loosely, ‘Scissors’ will lean towards soul and melody, ‘Paper’ - a quirkier indie pop, art rock vibe and ‘Rock’ - Afro Punk and Hip Hop.
