Gouge Away
by Nation of Language
(28 plays) | (0 fans)

Ian Devaney of Nation of Language explains how the cover came about: "People come to us all the time suggesting songs we should cover, but 98% of the time they’re songs written by our more obvious sonic influences. If I can’t offer a new angle or interpretation to the song, I’d rather spend that energy on creating original work. When Aidan suggested “Gouge Away” I was immediately struck by how badly I wanted to rework it in our style, and the whole song mapped itself out in my head right away. I didn’t let myself listen to the original from then until it was fully recorded so I might forget certain details about it, leaving only my impression of it’s foundational elements – the way the quiet, unsettling verses give way to the savage choruses, the way the big transitional guitar line overwhelms you every time it happens. What we ended up with felt like an honest reimagining so we’re proud to present it to everyone and shed light on our favorite song by a band we really love."

nowhere man

(23 plays) | (0 fans)

California band Tune-Yards are back with "nowhere, man", their first new single in over two years. The song name is a reference to the Beatles song of a similar name, and the video features Charlie Chapin–inspired footage. Merrill Garbus said, "We hope the music brings energy and a strong wind of encouragement to those who are shouting and singing loudly for justice right now.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Xd097nWH2s
