Minneapolis' Lumpy is gearing up to release a new album, Burn The Page, on October 18 via Ska Punk International (pre-order). As you'd probably expect from the record label he's on, there's some ska in Lumpy's DNA, and there's a little ska on lead single "House Plant," but it's more like a quirky indie pop song that falls somewhere between They Might Be Giants and AJJ. Lumpy, aka Bryan Highhill, says, "I’ve had this song the longest. I started writing it before I put out my last album. It’s gone through many iterations but I like this one the best. Originally, it was much longer, more beefed out with melodies and instruments, and had a ton more parts. I ended up splitting it into what became two songs on this album - 'House Plant' and 'Burn the Page.'"
