Despite all logic and good sense, Kenny Young and the Eggplants have recorded a new album, entitled Plantastic Voyage, on Cheese Thing Records.
The album features songs for TV and film from a parallel universe. The concept behind the album is explained in slightly more detail in the "More Fun Stuff" section of the band's website.
To celebrate the release of the album, the Eggplants will play a couple of special shows in New York City before embarking on a UK tour in late August. The tour will include stops in Edinburgh, Manchester, Chester, Oxford and London, and a performance at BunkFest in Wallingford. More details will be posted on the website as the dates grow nearer.
Two songs from the album have already been played on The Tom Robinson Show on BBC 6 Music: "Monster Hit Record" and "The Check Has Arrived." Tom called the Eggplants "the most brilliant, left-field Brooklyn band you have never heard of."
