SEA CREATURES STARED AT US AND WE STARED BACK AT THEM
WILBUR & MOORE'S FIRST RELEASE
We are proud to announce the release of our first album: Sea Creatures Stared at Us and We Stared Back at Them.
A quick Google search of that title will no doubt lead you to the song Don't Be Upset by New York songwriter Jeffrey Lewis, the perfect hint to what this album is all about: a homage to the exquisite songwriting of Jeffrey Lewis.
We have always been big admirers of Jeffrey Lewis' work, and frankly can barely think of any musician who is more clever with words than he is. To celebrate our first release, we thought it would be a great idea to ask some of our musical friends to reimagine their favourite Jeffrey Lewis songs for a compilation album.
And now, we invite you to have a listen, and if you like it, snap it up for a reasonable amount of 7$ through Bandcamp.
Owh, and wait, most importantly... any profits we make will be donated to Picture the Homeless, a cause selected by Jeffrey Lewis. All the more reason to get your hands on this one.
