Waste Age Teen Land marks the second release from Twin Cities quartet Face Candy. Featuring the talents of dual vocalists Micheal â??Eyedeaâ? Larsen and Kristoff Krane freestyling over the improvisations of bassist Casey Oâ??Brien and drummer JT Bates, Waste Age marks the final record Eyedea was able to completely finish before his tragic passing in October of 2010.
In the fifth episode of Wasted Teens, longtime friend of Rhymesayers and Eyedea, Sage Francis, talks about his first few listens to the album and his initial reactions to the improvisational theme of the album.
Recorded during two days at Winterland Studios by Brian Johnson (Prince, Eyedea & Abilites) and one night in front of an audience at St. Paulâ??s Black Dog CafÃ© (engineered by No Bird Singâ??s Graham Oâ??Brien), the album showcases the bandâ??s full spectrum of talentsâ??from contemplative instrumentals to auto-tuned joke rapping, and every shade in between. The record, and indeed the entire philosophy behind Face Candy requires sharp awareness in the moment. Are you ready to take the leap?
