Au Pair One-Armed Candy Bear on LP
Au Pair is a collaboration between Gary Louris (The Jayhawks) and Django Haskins (The Old Ceremony), who met performing the music of Big Star. Au Pair's lo-fi but high-brow pop songs were sung and played into a single microphone, then treated with experimental sonics along with producer Brian Haran. The band's debut album, One-Armed Candy Bear, will be issued in November 2015.
Over the last three decades, singer, songwriter and guitarist Gary Louris has built a deeply compelling body of music whose artistry and integrity has won the loyalty of an international audience and the respect of both critics and his peers. Best known for his seminal work with The Jayhawks, Louris is one of the most acclaimed musicians to come out of Minnesota's teeming rock scene.
"Django Haskins is a pop stylist, with a quick lyrical wit and a card shark's finesse in delivering a hook." - Independent Weekly
