The Super Lard Bros OST is conceptualised as a soundtrack to an imaginary console game. The game is a rehash of games in the 80’s Nintendo side-scrolling classics such as Super Mario Brothers and Double Dragon. Being working middle-class adults, the duo known as The Lard Brothers do not have the resources to develop the game.
However, they manage to only come out with the soundtrack which is an album of remixes of Singapore music acts.
Each remix is a re-imagination of the original tune, reconceptualising rock songs and electronic lullabies into hip-hop tunes. Unlike its predecessor Forest Action Team which is a mixbag of originals and covers of Singapore indie bands, The Super Lard Bros OST is purely a remix project. However, what both albums have in common is that they are released on National Day and for free as well.
Amidst recording the follow-up album to 2008’s Forest Action Team with 2 new members, The Lard Brothers decide to take some time off to work on a remix project. As with their love for old games, the album cover (done by local game designer Tan Teck Lee) and design is a throwback to 80's Nintendo 8-bit games like Super Mario Bros and Double Dragon.
The album is released online and can be downloaded for free from National Day, Sunday 9 August 2009 onwards.
released August 9, 2009
The Super Lard Bros OST is produced and recorded at the Love Studios.
