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.

Baby, I want you to know
You are all I wanna see

Hold me and I'll hold you too
I want to spend my time with you.

Baby, I want you to know
You are all I wanna see

If you tag along with me

Oh wwww when... you're with me
I want to tell you kiss me.
So kiss me and I'll kiss you too
I want to spend my time with you.

Track Name: Leafblower Blues
Walking down the highway
What am I gonna do
People passing by me
I'm still looking for you

I think i lost my suitcase
Don't have a thing to wear
I'm gonna hit the drugstore
I see you standing there

Jump, jump, jump on my ride
Jump, jump, jump on my ride

Driving to the dealer
My credit score is low
I can't afford the extras
It's time for me to go

Don't re-new my license
Too many points
The DMV is closed now
Let's blow this joint

Jump, jump, jump on my ride
Jump, jump, jump on my ride

…..It's time for me to go…..
…..It's time for me to go…..

Hit the garden center
Gotta mulch some leaves
Gonna buy a leaf blower
To save my aching knees

We're sitting in the driveway
The grass is too long
She goes and mounts the mower
Singing her song

Jump, jump, jump on my ride, yeah, Jump, jump, jump on my ride
Jump, jump, jump on my ride, yeah, Jump, jump, jump on my ride….
