Band: Buy Our Music and We’ll Give You Tea (Wait: It’s the Other Way Around)

Lovely Tyrants, a garage-folk duo featuring Andy Angelos and Phil Lomac, want you to know about their new EP. To pique interest, they launched Tea for Tyrants, actual tea that came with download instructions for the EP.

It worked out so well that they started their own tea and music company using five styles of tea and five emerging acts.  A Kickstarter campaign worked brilliantly.

Here’s more music from Lovely Tyrants.
