Old, New, Borrowed
'Old, New Borrowed' features one older Lollygags song, a brand new song and a cover song.
Old - Christian Laytner Originally released as a demo back in 2012, Christian Laytner has nothing to do with professional basketball. Christian Laytner is actually the name of a mute homeless man who used to walk the streets of Denver. He was known for carrying an acoustic guitar, a cherished possession of his. This guitar eventually was handed over to a friend of Lollygags' singer/guitarist Jonathan Snyder, who had helped take care of Christian Laytner, after Mr. Laytner's death. This is a song about an overlooked marginalized individual and helping someone out without expecting anything in return.
New - Grand Consolation "The war is lost, we pay the cost everyday. We trudge along and win battles along the way." An anthem for those of born into a mess we didn't ask for and didn't cause. Atleast we've got some good music to listen to!
Borrowed - 'Affection' by Jonathan Richman Originally performed by Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers 1979. People all over the world are STILL starving for affection
