Today shortly after Gotye won the Record of the Year at the Grammy Awards, two Basics albums ‘Ingredients’ and ‘Leftovers’ were released.

‘Ingredients’ is a best of album taking songs from each of the three Basics albums and the occasion single that fell in between.

‘Leftovers’ compiles the b-sides, demos and alternate versions but also includes a previously unreleased song ‘So Hard For You’.

The Basics were Kris Basic (Schroeder) and bass, Wally Basic (de Backer aka Gotye) on drums and Tim Basic (Heath) on guitar.

The Basics had limited commercial success but their music has made its way into television shows and has been played on Scrubs and Californication.

Both ‘Ingredients’ and ‘Leftovers’ will be released on February 22, 2013.
