Published Oct 16, 2015When Chris Van Der Laan and Ryan Walter Wagner aren't rapping together as Chrissy and Ryry (who form part of Vancouver's weed-obsessed Too High Crew), they make punk in a trio called the Greater Wall with drummer Dustin Bromley. Now, following a couple of years' worth of EPs and oddments, they have collected it all into a compilation called Songs About Death and Depression Just for Fun.
The 14-track album contains all of the songs from 2014's Whatever, Feels Real and 2015's Forbidden T-Shirt EPs, plus unreleased material and covers of Oblivians and the Modern Lovers.
Those who have heard some of these songs on the group's past releases might notice a few alterations. An description on Bandcamp points out that the tracks have been "remastered and remixed and in a couple instances, augmented or changed George Lucas-style."
Listen below. This follows a discography-spanning comp from another one of the prolific Van Der Laan's many projects, Baby Control.
