Waste Age Teen Land marks the second release from Twin Cities quartet Face Candy. Featuring the talents of dual vocalists Micheal “Eyedea” Larsen and Kristoff Krane freestyling over the improvisations of bassist Casey O’Brien and drummer JT Bates, Waste Age marks the final record Eyedea was able to completely finish before his tragic passing in October of 2010.
Below is the first episode of "Wasted Teens", an-under-the-bridge interview with Jeremy Ylvisaker.
Jeremy is a friend of Face Candy, and an artist/collaborator with Guitar Party, Carbon Carousel, Alpha Consumer, and Andrew Bird.
Recorded during two days at Winterland Studios by Brian Johnson (Prince, Eyedea & Abilites) and one night in front of an audience at St. Paul’s Black Dog Café (engineered by No Bird Sing’s Graham O’Brien), the album showcases the band’s full spectrum of talents—from contemplative instrumentals to auto-tuned joke rapping, and every shade in between. The record, and indeed the entire philosophy behind Face Candy requires sharp awareness in the moment. Are you ready to take the leap?
