Remember when we mentioned an upcoming full-length album from UKE-HUNT back when we announced their debut 7", The Prettiest Star? Sure you do. Well, as always, we’re making good on our word. On June 10th, we’ll release Uke-Hunt, ten revitalized renditions of Spike Slawson’s favorite songs. The vibe of the album is unique, built on the backbone of Spike’s smooth vocals and ukulele strumming, and filled out with a bevy of layered instrumentation (one word: glockenspiel). The track listing reads like the ultimate mix tape. Such classic songs as Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” or “Rainy Days and Mondays” by the Carpenters are completely reworked with a memorable, lounge/soul vibe that will have you relaxing with your favorite cocktail in hand. It is just the right amount of quirk and talent that makes these covers truly UKE-HUNT’s. Stay tuned for tour dates. In the meantime, if you’re lucky enough to live in the bay area you can catch them live at Thee Parkside on May 13th!
