Blunderspublik - Reason (Hushfeed cover feat. Jay Churko)

Blunderspublik's new ep Kittens & Shit: Blunderspublik's Homage to '90s Winnipeg is now out for your listening pleasure and edification. Hushfeed, Kittens, Mikimoto, Bonaduces and Shit covers/reimaginings. You can download here, physical copies should be available soon from Sfeericle Records.

 I love the idea of paying tribute to your own hometown.

Here's a few originals from the originators. It would be fun to hear newer acts like Greg MacPherson, Sons of York, Cannon Bros., Attica Riots, Warsaw, etc. do Streetheart, Stretchmarks, Breath Grenades, Harlequin, Liquid Bone Dance, QCK, or Grand Theft Canoe etc. and vice versa. Who can make this happen?

Hushfeed - Reason

The Bonaduces - Judy Blume Weekend

Newer Bonaduces:

Kittens - Butterfly

Sloan - Keep Swinging (Downtown): Is Sloan the Canadian KISS?

New Sloan? Yes. The album is called Commonwealth, there's a side for each guy (like the KISS solo records!), out September 9. Kiss made a concept record (The Elder), and Andrew Scott's side is an 18-minute suite called Forty-Eight Portraits. It's possible the band will be doing a Vegas residency instead of KISS, I don't know.

Diamond Side (Jay):

1) We've Come This Far 2) You've Got A Lot On Your Mind
3) Three Sisters
4) Cleopatra
5) Neither Here Nor There

Heart Side (Chris):

6) Carried Away
7) So Far So Good
8) Get Out
9) Misty's Beside Herself
10) You Don't Need Excuses To Be Good

Shamrock Side (Patrick):

11) 13 (Under A Bad Sign)
12) Take It Easy
13) What's Inside
14) Keep Swinging (Downtown)

Spade Side (Andrew):

15) Forty-Eight Portraits

How about a free download of recently-released cover of The Good In Everyone by The Almighty Rhombus?
