CD Review 19: Those Lavender Whales

Artist: Those Lavender Whales
Album: Let’s Be Friends! I’m Sorry I’m So Sleepy
Label: Fork and Spoon Recordings
Yays: 1, 2, 4, 5

Those Lavender Whales have played during several WUSC events, including a showcase and an event on Greene Street. Aaron Graves gets by with a little help from his friends, recruiting various peoples to play live shows with him. Graves’ lyrics are fun, quirky and whimsical and so is the instrumentation that accompanies them. Musical instruments include, but are not limited to: guitar, bass, drums, banjo, accordion, slide whistle, glockenspiel, and various other percussion. Each track has something different to offer, so give ‘em a whirl.
