Brought together by their mutual love of the 90s alternative rock scene, Dating Myself pays tribute to the sounds of some of the most celebrated rock bands of that time with their new album Fine, There.
Brainchild of self-described polyamorous musician LL Schultz, she has collaborated with Jen Foster and Jessie Robertson to create, record and release the album of new material that pays homage to the nineties.
“Each song on the album was written with the influence of many bands from that era,” says Schultz in a release. “Every practice harnessed a new song and many contain lyrical tidbits from some of those bands, hidden within the tight riffs, catchy melodies and distorted goodness.”
In the tradition of Spinal Tap, the trio has built a back-story to the band’s existence that includes becoming their alter-egos Laurda (guitar/vocals), Jessi* (bass) and J6en (drums).
In keeping with the retro theme the album will be available on limited-run cassette tape as well as digital download. The album drops December 4, 2012 but the band hosts its album release party at the Rickshaw Theatre on Friday, November 30, 2012.
