Spencer Breslin

New York based Spencer Breslin is better known for his acting work, having appeared in numerous movies since his breakthrough role in Disney’s The Kid. What most people may be surprised to learn is that he’ll soon be releasing his debut record, Labor Day. On his own label, no less.

Produced by James William Hindle and aided by members of hip indie types such as Crystal Stilts, Ladybug Transistor, Love Is All and Architecture In Helsinki, the eleven track album was recorded at Brooklyn’s Marlborough Farms over the course of two week-long sessions. I may be somewhat biased since I was lucky enough to have played drums on two songs, but I think it’s a corker. Every bit the musical magpie, Spencer wears his influences proudly on his sleeve. From the absurdly catchy, Warren Zevon-esque Rejection Speaks to the avant-garde, Velvets inspired title track with its percussive freak-outs and caustic violin, the record plays like a scrapbook of Spencer’s own musical loves. You’d be forgiven for assuming he was the lovechild of Patti Smith and Jackson Browne! It’s rather fantastic and something I’m very proud to have been a part of.

Labor Day will be available very soon through Acadian Recording Co. Keep checking Spencer’s Myspace for an official release date as well as news of any live appearances. If you live in New York you’re sure catch him around some time. You can also download album standout Rejection Speaks via this handy Mediafire link!
