"Timeless Melody (The La’s Cover)" by Veronica Falls // Covers EP 2 (2013 - Available at Rough Trade)
Veronica Falls know their way around a good cover, just check out their last Covers EP. Now, to celebrate the release of their new album, they’ve cut another EP of lovely, dreamy, jangle pop covers of songs from Bob Dylan, The Moles, Ween, and The La’s the name a few. Here on “Timeless Melody” from The La’s, they keep it pretty tight to the original, but the darker edge of the original is softened slightly, making the track a breezy beauty. You can order the EP now at Rough Trade while the supplies last. Highly recommended.
WORDS & MUSIC // PITCHFORK’S 60 FAVORITE BOOKS ABOUT MUSIC
If you like reading about music (or hell, just enjoy reading - period), Pitchfork has compiled an impressive and eclectic list that’s as good a jumping off point as any. I was surprised to find that I have read several of these, but more surprised by how many of them I had never heard of and in turn intend to seek out for future reads. Selections include books on Bob Dylan, Brian Eno, The Smiths, Factory Records, and the underground New York scene in the 70’s to name but a few.
Definitely worth a look if you have some free time.
