Dean & Britta, both former members of indie-pop band Luna and known for their work scoring films such as "The Squid and the Whale" and "Margot at the Wedding," released their Zöe/Rounder debut, Back Numbers, in February.
The album, which was produced by Toni Visconti (T-Rex, Boomtown Rats, David Bowie), features original tracks like "Wait For Me," the eulogy for a dead bunny "Crystal Blue R.I.P.," along with covers of Donovan’s "Teen Angel" and Lee Hazlewood’s "You Turned My Head Around."
