We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Randy’s Got A Playdough Face’s new song “To My Lasagna” (listen below). The track is taken from his upcoming album My Father Used to Build Sand Sculptures, which is scheduled to be released on June 6th, with cassettes available through Family Vacation Records.
“To My Lasagna” features catchy guitar riffs that playfully bounce all over the track. The anecdotal and whimsical lyrics let the listener get lost in the spur of the moment feeling of falling in love with complete strangers.
In this project, Daniel Marino, of Queens, NY, takes on the moniker “Randy,” who leads an indie rock band Randy’s Got a Playdough Face, hailing from The Great Beyond. His EP, Fairy (2015), received acclaim among niche indie and alt rock crowds upon its release, and earned Randy a cult following who have been waiting on new music for over two years now.
Randy’s debut LP, My Father Used to Build Sand Sculptures, is reminiscent of early 2000s indie rock with influences drawing from Death Cab For Cutie, Wilco, and R.E.M. This new release explores deeply rooted personal emotions in their relation to the inner workings of everything else in the world. All of the songs on the record were written in a single unique guitar tuning devised just for this album in order to give a familiar and signature harmonic and sonic structure throughout.
