Squirrel Nut Zippers - Perennial Favorites

Squirrel Nut Zippers third album is presented as an old-timey seed catalog, which is an awesome choice for a band so steeped in old timey ways. As with all other Squrrel Nut Zippers albums, the design and packaging of this album is fantastic, which is right up the alley of a guy like me who has a borderline liner notes fetish.

Perennial Favorites brings a bit of Django Reinhardt gypsy jazz to the Squirrel Nut Zippers formula. It works every bit as well as you'd think it would if you're the sort of person who believes in the powers of Squirrel Nut Zippers, which I am. Everything about this album is conceptually perfect. It's as if Wes Anderson had a hand in it (he didn't).
