The Raveonettes – I Wanna Be Adored (The Stone Roses Cover)

raveonettes1

The Raveonettes do their take on the madchester classic, “I Wanna Be Adored” by The Stone Roses. we think king monkey might be proud but you never know.. either way we’ve been waiting… and waiting to hear this cover for quite some time.

this Dr. Martens’ artists cover classic tracks from the last 50 years thing has produced pretty awesome results (get familiar here). Cass Bird and Molly Schiot direct The Raveonettes video for the track. and while we’re on the topic, check out our b3sci Manchester mixtape HERE.

The Sand Band – Set Me Free / Lover’s Spit

the-sand-band

gotta love a song that’s replay worthy… like 2 days straight now replay worthy. “Set Me Free” is previewed from The Sand Band’s forthcoming All Through The Night release. needless to say, we’re into it, and their take on Broken Social Scene’s “Lover’s Spit” is rather nice too.

word on the street is that Noel Gallagher has been on the prowl for a new backing band… enter Liverpool’s The Sand Band. one listen to “Set Me Free” and we get it. that plus degrees of connection to The Coral, and the fact Chris Sharrock’s son (Jay) is in the group, and it all comes together.

so the good news is that these guys are pretty awesome. the less-good news is that noel’s upcoming tour won’t be solo. guess that’s ok, we still have moments like this to hold on to…

THROWBACK SATURDAYS: Ou Est Le Swimming Pool – Dance The Way I Feel

ou-est-le-swimming-pool

to be surprised is an understatement, when we heard singer Charles Haddon took his life yesterday after Ou Est Le Swimming Pool performed at Belgium’s Pukkelpop festival. with a new LP Christ Died for Our Synths coming in October, there was a feeling of good things to come from these guys. today we share with you a great pop song, “Dance The Way I Feel” will always be one of our choice jams of 2009. our best wishes go out to the band, the family, the fans, and all those close to them.
