MP3: Lanu – “Roosevelt Blues” (feat. Megan Washington)

So, unless you’re hiding in a cave somewhere in the mountain ranges of North Pakistan, you’ve probably heard a catchy little ditty called “Beautiful Trash” bursting through your radio speakers. The track is a collaboration between Lanu (Lance Ferguson, of Melbourne funk outfit, The Bamboos) and indie-pop darling, Megan Washington.

What you may not know is that the track is only one of five collaborations between the pair that’s featured on Lanu’s new album, ‘Her 12 Faces’. Another is the fantastic “Roosevelt Blues”, which we’re giving away for free for one week only. Be quick!

Built around a homespun loop of crackling acoustic guitar, Washington spins a gentle tale about drifting through L.A life. Head to Triple J’s Home & Hosed blog for Lanu’s full rundown on how the song originated.
