Via a lengthy update on their blog Michigan rockers, Cheap Girls, have announced that they are finally releasing the acoustic version of their album “My Roaring 20’s” on January 14th via Quote Unquote Records. Regarding the acoustic album the band writes:
“We recorded this a couple years back and have been trying to figure out a decent time to get it out. It is exactly what it seems like – an acoustic version of our second record. Not simply a boring guitar/vocal record, but with plenty of additional fun things that we thought were a good idea throughout recording. I’m listening to it right now and I’ve gotta say that it certainly retains a fair amount of “charm.” The recording was done in early 2010, when we were doing a fair amount of shows around Small Brown Bike’s reunion and becoming good friends with them. Dan and Mike were actually the ones with the idea for doing this. We recorded it in Dan’s basement and Mike acted as producer/idea man. If I remember correctly the weird guitar on “Sunnyside” was done by him, along with some vocals. A real hodge-podge record. Maybe the hodgiest podgiest of any prior release.”
In addition, the band also stated the following relating to a new full-length:
“For the moment, we’re deep into work on songs for what will be our next record. It’s still in the early stages, but it’s coming along nicely and we’re enjoying ourselves as much as ever. It’s a bit premature to really go into too much detail, but we’ll be sure to let you know as things shape up.”
Cheap Girls released their last album “Giant Orange” in February of 2012.
