Ska goes Disney or does Disney go ska? Chicken or egg, we know.
Orange County's third wave ska vets Suburban Legends are set to release their latest EP, Dreams Aren't Real But These Songs Are, on October 8, 2013 in CD and digital formats, with the LP version coming November 5.
What a clever title and even more clever (clever-er?) concept.
The six-song EP is a reverently played and imaginatively arranged collection of Disney classics, full of the band's distinct blend of fizzy ska and sugary pop, with accents of disco and funk.
The band tries its hand at songs like "A Dream Is a Wish" from Cinderella and "You've Got a Friend in Me" from Toy Story, tying together their unique ska lineage with time-honored Tin Pan Alley songcraft. There is also a sun-soaked, rock steady rendition of "Beauty and the Beast."
We love it already!
