Do Not Affect A Breezy Manner
"Do Not Affect A Breezy Manner" is Freelove Fenner's debut full-length LP. This 18-song collection—the follow-up to their 2012 "Pineapple Hair" EP—is their freest and most diverse offering yet. Stacked with hooks, ideas, and sonic excursions, it features a looser rhythm section and more studio play than any previous release by the band.
"Do Not Affect A Breezy Manner" was recorded and mixed by the band in their all-analog basement studio, The Bottle Garden, and no digital effectors were used in its making.
Release Date: November 19, 2013
