On April 16th, Record Store Day, Franz Ferdinand Covers EP was released on vinyl. My local record store didn’t have a copy in stock, which was quite enraging. Apparently this is a fairly hard to come by limited “regional” release. But I was able to track down some of the tracks to share with you. These are some of my favorites. Enjoy!
My favorite holiday is fast approaching! Record Store Day is this Saturday April 16th. This is the one day out of the year we come together to celebrate our dying local record store. Your local participating record store may have live in store acts throughout the day. Be sure to go out and check to see who is playing. What makes Record Store Day special, besides the live acts, are the special releases. Bands come together and release a live concert or some rare b – sides. The complete list of releases can be found here. But I’ve gone through the list and picked the best new releases.
Its that time of year again. Spring break is right around the corner, which for many young people means an epic road trip. This post will be a short play list of suggested driving songs. I’ve also been able to drag up a seldom heard B side from the good old days of Death Cab for Cutie “Spring Break Broke.”
I love covers. The ability for a band to take a song that you have already heard a million times, a song you have probably already fallen in love with and and bring it back to life in a new light, is one of the pinnacles of a good band. Good news though! One of my favorite bands Franz Ferdinand is going to be a subject of an EP of some of their best known songs covered by such greats as LCD Sound System and the Magnetic Fields. The EP is set to be released on Record Store day, which is April 16th. I love hearing songs that I already love changed and rearranged by a band I already like, such as LCD Sound System and The Magnetic Fields. It brings a new perspective to a song that has, frankly, gotten stale.
