About:

Stranger Lazy now records albums through the mail and rarely makes an album that sounds like the last. Once a 4-piece, now a 3-piece in 3 different studios in 3 different parts of the country... Since beginning in 1996, the band has created over 25 albums collectively, leaving a library of music in its wake. The future will catch on someday, but for now.. Come on in and get ya some.

 Rawesome Records,

This is a concept album.  Recorded live at the Comedy Club in Bloomington, IN.  BEST tells the story of 4 comedians thrown in the subversion of a skeptical crowd.  Some jokes land, others don't.  Each song started as one-long-recording-session, with group overdubs and vocals.  This is an experiment.

Magnet Magazine Review - This Indianapolis quartet's fourth album channels grunge in its purest form. It's a hybrid of Built to Spill and Spoon, a snort of acid guitar and strung-out distortion cut with bouncy bass lines. Guitarist Rob Freeman wails in height-of-madness ecstasy and drops to a sweetly haunting murmur a mere three minutes later. The Cox Sintrific offers all the crystalline intensity of a drug trip, minus the slam back to reality.

Indpls IndyStar CD Review by David Lindquist - In some ways, "The Cox Sintrific" sounds as if surveillance microphones captured the members of Stranger Lazy during a casual practice session. Rob Freeman, Kevin Fitzpatrick, Paul Jansen and Mitch Sandalman pass instruments around, craft compact songs that sometimes clock in at two minutes and make a consistently enjoyable sound. Yet "The Cox Sintrific" is far from amateur hour. Its lo-fi aesthetic is carefully executed, and lyrics such as "Haste makes waste; I'm sleeping all day" signal a wry intellect. Freeman approaches singing from same lofty, lean perspective as Built to Spill vocalist Doug Martsch. One song fittingly features the word "palindromes" in its title: The music of Stranger Lazy doesn't point outward as much as it swings back and forth in reflexive delight.
