2nd volume of ‘Faux Real’ up for pre-order

Preorders / February 11, 2015

Faux Real II, the second edition of the compilation which has real bands covering tracks “made famous by faux musicians,” is now up for pre-order at Father/Daughter Records. The compilation was actually denied by Record Store Day 2015, while being a RSD release last year for the first volume. According to label head Jessi Frick, the release was denied for not being compelling enough. Anyways, you can see the tracklisting they’re planning this year, below. The pressing will be on “Fake Grape” vinyl and will be limited to 500 copies.

01. Chumped – “Threshold” (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World)
02. Krill – “Billy Madison Victory Song” (Billy Madison)
03. Quarterbacks – “You Painted My World” (The Adventures of Pete & Pete)
04. Running In The Fog – “Killer Tofu” (Doug)
05. Allison Crutchfield (of Swearin’) – “Special To Me (Phoenix Audition Song)” (Phantom of the Paradise)
