To mark the launch of Freelove Fenner’s new platter, Do Not Affect A Breezy Manner, we’re reissuing their two previous sold-out releases, In The Bottle Garden (2009) and Pineapple Hair (2012) on a very limited run split 12”. It’s the first time these two albums will be available on vinyl. The reissue also includes a new song recorded during the sessions for their latest LP.
The Pineapple Hair/Bottle Garden 12” split will only be available as a bonus with pre-orders of Do Not Affect A Breezy Manner. Do not snooze on this. No reserves, holds, etc. Get both Freelove Fenner 12”s when you pre-order before November 19th.
We’re getting your pre-orders ready to send out next week. There’s still a bit of time to pre-order and get the bonus 12” LP reissue of their two previous albums, Pineapple Hair (2012) and In The Bottle Garden (2009), both on vinyl for the first time.
In other words: The full Freelove Fenner vinyl collection can be yours for just 16 easy payments of $1. What are you waiting for?

hey white boy/what re you doing in chinatown?/hey white boy/what re you doing in parc ex?
mavo says: i took the line hey white boy, what you doing in uptown? from Velvet Underground, im waiting for the man. and changed it to chinatown and parc ex…its more of a joke, since those two places are predominanty, non-Caucasian so its kind like weird al kinda technique. of course, i love those two places in montreal.
most of my songs are based on my experience. since i m a first generation immigrant. my songs tend to be more about being a foreigner/outsider. i enjoy montreal’s ethnic diversity. i enjoy going to different parts of town. there are more to montreal than mile end/plateau. but don t get me wrong. i live in mile end which is convenient for playing music and having studios close by. so i’m not preaching to kids or making fun of them.
