Veronica Falls - Six Covers
Veronica Falls certainly charmed our hearts this year and their record was certainly one of our favorites. The band has an uncanny knack for folding in influences while sounding tip-of-the-tongue nostalgic without fully recalling past records. They have that charming ability to make you yearn for the originals like they do and in that very same vein, they're also awesome in the covers department. Unfortunately this is long out of press but rapidly filling up the ebay shelves (ahem if anyone needs a last minute x-mas suggestion for me). On this limited run, aptly titled Six Covers the band rope in their now famous Roky Erikson cover with additional homages to The Rolling Stones, The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, The Verlaines, Slumber Party and The Eurythmics. The set's popped up digitally here and there but its well worth seeking out if you can.
