American Laundromat Records proudly announces Tanya Donelly and the Parkington Sisters, a collection of covers from Grammy-nominated, singer/songwriter and founding member of three of the most influential and successful bands of the post-punk era, Tanya Donelly (Breeders, Throwing Muses, Belly), available 8/14.
Today, pre-orders including signed copies, test pressings and special vinyl colors are available exclusively at alr-music.com.
“When Joe from American Laundromat asked if I’d be interested in doing a covers album, I was hesitant, mainly because most of the songs I truly love are already perfect in their original form,” says Donelly. “But then I had the idea to ask the brilliant Parkington Sisters to be the band for this project, to bring their gorgeous sound and spirit, and make it something cohesive and centered.”
Joining Tanya on the album are The Parkington Sisters (Rose, Sarah, Ariel), their sister Lydia Parkington (cello), Matthias Bossi (drum, percussion) and Jon Evans (bass, percussion) who also recorded and mixed the album.
Of the choice cuts covered, Donelly explains, “These are some of the most honest, moving, beautiful, unfiltered, true and cool songs that have ever been written, in my opinion. And those same adjectives apply to the Parkington Sisters as well.”
Tanya Donelly and the Parkington Sisters is available for pre-order exclusively at American Laundromat Records.
