Under the Covers (volume 2), from Fuzzkill Records
What a great idea for the international day of love! Glasgow's Fuzzkill Records is offering Under the Covers, the second edition of covers of love/lust songs with all proceeds going to one of two charities: The Greater Maryhill Foodband; and Refugee Action. This is an undeniably great way to freshen up some beloved love songs, with enough familiarity to tickle your memory and enough new to delight you. Emerging young bands from Scotland (and a wanderer or two from Northern England contributed tracks. The collection is available as a digital download or limited edition cassette. See the Bandcamp link below for detail and a stream of the entire record. A few of my favorites are below.
