A mongrel born of love lost, intoxication, back beats, nipples, distortion, duality and Staffordshire terriers, Laneous and the Family Yah are proud to present their new album Found Things.

A collage of inspiration found in the bands travels, collected to produce a miscellaneous representation of their experiences in music and words, Found Things is 17 tracks written between mid 2009 to mid 2010 by Laneous & the Family Yah and recorded mid 2010 at Psi Fi studios in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley by Peet G.

In the 12 months since the release of their debut album St Ill. Regal, L&TFY have been engaged in a heavy mix of touring and festival appearances whilst also finding the time to release 3x limited edition EP’s, not to mention writing and recording their new album. It’s a rollercoaster the band has been on since they were picked up as Spotlight Artists on Triple J Unearthed in June 2009 and named amongst Hip Hop’s Hottest in J Mag City by City ‘Oz Hip Hop’ special. Once St. Ill Regal was launched in August and Triple J started spinning single ‘Searing Life’, the band quickly shifted from underground whisper to national mutter.

In particular – it’s been they’re bombastic live performances endearing them to the swarms of punters that have caught their numerous East-Coast Tours. It’s with this tenacity that Laneous & The Family Yah approach Found Things.

From start to finish, front to back, Found Things is a devastating mongrel mixture of genres, instruments, tempos, styles and influences, and it solidifies Laneous & The Family Yah as one of the most dangerous acts in the country.
