Listen: Six Piece Folk-Punk Band Releases Space Jam Concept Album

Californian indie-punk band Sledding With Tigers have turned everyone's favourite 90s kids movie into a (surprisingly good) concept album.

If you grew up in the 90s then it's not even a question…you fucking love Space Jam. Michael Jordan playing basketball against aliens in a team alongside all of our Looney Toons favourites? Well, shit man. If you're lucky enough to catch it being played on TV you will likely cancel plans to watch that film and get your fix of nostalgia. I guess that's why it isn't all that surprising that American folk-punk band Sledding With Tigers have gone ahead and released a Space Jam concept album, suitably titled Come On And Slam.

The Californian six-piece, which features a violinist, banjo and accordion player, posted a tweet in May 2014 to try and gain support to save a local music venue. If they received 1000 retweets, Sledding With Tigers promised to record and release an entire album of songs about Space Jam. Well, here we are 1088 retweets later, and Come On And Slam has been released in its entirety. Listen to Take It From Me, Michael Jordan below, and buy the whole thing HERE.

The first Soundcloud comment we saw really sums it all up: "It's exactly what I wanted from a folk-punk Space Jam song."
