The Big Kahuna Hard Music, News, Streaming

Cult 90’s rockers Local H have announced a brand new covers LP, Local H’s Awesome Quarantine Mix-Tape #3, and have shared two singles from the release, “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)”, originally be Looking Glass and “Hackensack” originally by Fountains of Wayne.


Both songs can be streamed at THIS LOCATION. The album will be released on CD/LP/4×7″ boxset/CS/Digital on October 8th via Brutal Panda Records.

Local H remain as prolific and hungry as ever three decades into their perennially loud career. Shortly after the release of their critically acclaimed, Steve Albini produced album Lifers in 2020, the world changed forever with the onset of the global pandemic. After facing tour cancellations around the world, Local H became one of the first bands to embrace the drive-in concert experience. While locked under quarantine, frontman Scott Lucas began doing live streams from his living room (or bathroom… or bedroom…) on a near-daily basis. Everyone from Prince to Blondie to Fountains Of Wayne to Mark Lanegan.

The band decided to pick the best of those “sessions” and record them for the third entry in their series of cover albums, aptly titled LOCAL H’s AWESOME QUARANTINE MIX-TAPE #3. Recorded at Million Yen studios in Chicago by their longtime collaborator Andy Gerber, the release is a testament to the solace that music can provide during the most difficult of times.

Local H are currently embarking on a 2021 tour supporting Soul Asylum. They also announce headlining dates with Radkey as support for the fall for The Lifers Retour. On 10/22, Local H will be performing at Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta.
