Tears For Fears
Something extra from the press release:
This community compilation, put on by LMSFN and GROUP, was recorded at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco during May 2016. Each of the 11 bands were given 4 hours to record on a Tascam 8 track... afterwards the songs were mixed in a couple of hours with minimal additions.
RIYL: The compilation Freedom Of Choice, The Flaming Lips’ With A Little Help From My Fwends, the compilation San Francisco Is Doomed, Sonny Smith’s 100 Records Volume II: I Miss The Jams and the compilation If I Were A Carpenter.
FCC WARNING: 8
Recommended Tracks: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 11
1. (4:35) ***Fleetwood Mac by Mall Walk – Fine take on Fleetwood Mac’s classic Dreams. Solid guitar work. Play it.
2. (3:18) **Modern English by Buddies – I Melt With You cover. More punky and louder that the original. Cool take.
3. (4:07) *Smokey Robinson by Toner – Dream pop version of Smokey Robinson’s 1981 song Being With You. Effective.
4. (4:59) ***Tears for Fears by Pardoner – Oi! punk version of Tears For Fears’ Head Over Heels. It rocks!! One of my favorites.
5. (4:33) Sheryl Crow by Dick Stusso – Like Wilco doing a Sheryl Crow cover. For fans only.
6. (4:01) **Morrissey by Never Young – Impressive take on Morrissey’s classic Suedehead. Totally enjoyable. Medium-up tempo.
7. (5:02) *Dido by Jay Som – Cover of Dido’s White Flag. Slow start. Nice guitar work. Dramatic.
8. (4:54) ***Prince by Baus – FCC (Fuck it). Wow! Talk about reinventing a song completely. Baus’ take on Prince’s Let’s Pretend We’re Married is one of the coolest covers I have heard in years. Upbeat, minimal and playful. Do not play outside safe harbor.
9. (4:47) No Doubt by Plush – The bar band that plays covers on Thursdays.
10. (4:41) Coldplay by Crush – This sounds like a high school band playing prom night.
11. (3:58)** Mazzy Star by Owl Paws – Cover of Fade Into You. Slow/fast tempo. Haunting.
