Good Cover Version: Walt Wagner Does My Bloody Valentine

Good Cover Version: Walt Wagner Does My Bloody Valentine

Pulp gave the world the song “Bad Cover Version.” But seeing as I’m a sonic optimist, I’m of the belief that there’s more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

Movienite – Yippie!

Source: All Things Go

movienite

Movienite combine beauty and prowess with destruction and fury in their very intense and exclamatory new track, “Yippie!” Located in Gothenburg, Sweden (home of The Knife and Ace of Base), this trio share the shoegaze sound of the early ’90s with the loud-quiet-loud dynamic of Pixies and Nirvana and the dreamy indie pop bloom of the ’80s. The combination results in the “wall of sound” shoegaze style nailed down pat. The biggest surprise is how strong of a closer the track is; as the song begins to calm down with a clean guitar interlude, amp feedback squeals it back to life and a dirty, face melting guitar solo worth listening ...
