Hear Davey Lane’s Experiment Stu Mackenzie and Tim Rogers Collaborations

Davey Lane is releasing a double A-side single featuring what he calls “experimental” collaborations with Stu Mackenzie of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and his You Am I frontman Tim Rogers.

The project is titled ‘Duo-Monophonic Explorations Vol. 1’. Mackenzie and Lane have recorded the song ‘I’ll Set U Free’ with Rogers’ song is titled ‘The First Flung One To Crash’.

The single will include three completely different versions of each song contained within each track. By listening to the track balanced left and right you will hear the collaborations. Pan left for Davey’s solo versions of the songs and pan right for the Rogers or Mackenzie only tracks.

“I’ve been sitting on this idea for a while, and as time passed and I thought I’d best hop to it before somebody else thinks of it and nabs it for themselves,” Davey said. “If I’m gonna have guests on my records, it can’t be for the gratuitous sake of having someone more popular or handsome making me look good – it’s gotta be something super special. This concept provided me the perfect vehicle to collaborate with something a bit experimental and unique. Tim and Stu are both masters in their fields and sonic adventurers in their own unique ways, so I was stoked that they were both up for giving this a crack, not knowing if it was gonna work or be a complete and utter disaster. I’m proud to say that after much head-scratching and finger-crossing it came up a treat.”

The first single branded Volume 1 indicates that Lane is planning more collaborations. “It was so much fun I thought I may as well leave it open-ended. Hopefully there might be some more folks keen on doing more of these with me sometime. Who knows eh? I’ve already started rifling through the Rolodex in any case,” he said.
