Squirrel Nut Zippers - The Inevitable
RSD Drops September 2020 release
The band mostly just calls it jazz, or "hot music". It's music that doesn't really have a name anymore, yet everyone recognizes it and loves it. This album includes instrumental with the pitch-perfect title of "Lugubrious Whing Whang," cover versions of "You're Drivin' Me Crazy" and "I've Found a New Baby," originals like "Lover's Lane," and the hair-raising "La Grippe" Ð the SNZs have taken this music and appropriated it entirely, without a trace of irony. The result is magnificent.
