The Lard Brothers: Free Album Download

The Lard Brothers are a hip-hop-based side project made up of Bob Seng and Bob Tan. They recently got cracking on a Mark Ronson-esque project by revamping and recording their favorite Singaporean indie tunes. Joined by Bob Tang, they invited their friends to guest on the album, lending their vocal talents and instrumental prowess. Each cover is a re-imagination of the original tune, embarking on a vastly different path from its original.

The ‘Forest Action Team’ album is released online via the Aging Youth Records site and can be downloaded for free from today onwards.
