ECA Records continues to defy convention and practically thumb it’s nose at the mainstream music establishment. How have they done that you ask? First and foremost by releasing Ramona Cordova’s brilliant but challenging debut record The Boy who Floated Freely, following that up with Christians and Lions’ More Songs For Dreamsleepers and The Very Awake and now by putting out a cassette-only ep release by the band Kay Kay And His Weathered Underground.
While the cassette only aspect is a bit of a novelity the songs are nothing but. “Hey Momma” is the Sgt. Peppers meets West Side Story meets Ween freakout we’ve all been waiting for. Throw in a little dixieland coronet, banjo, muted trumpet, toy piano and Beach Boysesque vocal harmonies and you have one hell of a song. You can buy it here.
