The Beatles, Breeders, Zombies, Kinks, Flaming Lips, Cars, Yes, and Debussy make up just some of the layers of the Warhol-esque sonic power-pop art painting that is The Stan Laurels.
Founded in 2005 and based in Austin, Texas, USA, The Laurels are the musical creation of earthling Sound Scientist John Lathrop. The epitome of "indie," John takes independent ownership of every aspect of music production (down to cover art & liner notes), as he writes, plays, sings, records, produces, and releases his music on his label, Plaid Records.
John believes the significance of music and its impact on our lives cannot be understated; after all, it was music - The Beatles, in particular - that brought him and his soul-mate together. Thus, The Stan Laurels are the culmination of John's musical vocabulary and relentless drive to record the perfect pop song - all in honor and celebration of music's sheer emotional power.
Accolades abound, especially in recent years, with MAYBE (2018), one of 5 nominees for Best Indie/Alt Rock album of the Year at The Independent Music Awards, and "Lost & Found" (2019), the latest single gracing many "Best of 2019" lists on radio stations and playlists around the world.
