Katy Goodman & Greta Morgan – Take It, It’s Yours
[Year: 2016 / Country: USA / Label: Polyvinyl]
Covering old hardcore and punk songs is nothing new. Neither is making them slow and pretty. But that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be done. On Take It, It’s Yours, the singers of La Sera and Springtime Carnivore take classics from the likes of the Buzzcocks, Gun Club and The Misfits, and reenvision the songs as lush dream pop songs. The result is a really pleasurable and amazingly cohesive listen. At a fraction of its originally tempo, their version of Bad Brains’ Pay To Cum may be the song taken furthest beyond recognition.
Favorite tracks: Pay To Cum, Ever Fallen In Love, Rebel Yell
