Thomas Feurer and Neal Pawley, who are 11 Acorn Lane, create "accomplished musical whimsy" (LA Times) that inspires critics to fanciful descriptions. MSN Music calls their jazzy tunes "a groovy concoction of lounge music and contemporary electronics spiked with top notes of surf rock, cha-cha and brass." Metromix says they "sound like Henry Mancini, Herb Alpert and Lawrence Welk sharing a drunken jam session." In other words, they swing.
On Time For Tea, their sixth album for the Wooden Hat label, out February 10, 2015, the duo keep swinging, with 13 tracks including the cheerful 1920s-inspired sounds of "Perfect," with its tuba bassline; the humorous title track; and the infectiously happy "Lucky Day."

A cha-cha beat goes to the space-age supermarket on "In Aisle Three"; and for that tea, there's "Sugar and Cream," reminiscent of a Merrie Melodies cartoon soundtrack. (Or, if you like it hot, "Caliente.") "Horsey In The Sleepsack," with its sly quote from Grieg's "In the Hall Of The Mountain King," could be what clubbers in the Balkan underground are moving their bodies to, and "Spend My Time With You" is the song a boyfriend in a '30s movie would sing, and features many different trombone mutes with colorful names such as "Mel-O-Wah," "Wa-Wah Du All," "Clear Tone," and raunchiest of all, "Plunger."

11 Acorn Lane's signature sound, combining painstaking craftsmanship with tongue-in-cheek quirkiness, explains why they've had music featured on shows including HBO's "Bored to Death," Showtime's "Weeds," FOX's "Bones, " NPR's "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" and PBS's "Roadtrip Nation" and in the European English-language film "Girl On A Bicycle," among many other prominent placements, as well as on compilations in Europe and Japan.
