Surfer Blood are releasing a Covers EP as a one-time vinyl pressing, covering some wildly disparate artists like Outkast, Pavement, Cream, Mudhoney, Breeders, and even Hey Sandy by Polaris (aka, the theme-song from The Adventures of Pete & Pete).

You can stream their take on Mudhoney’s Good Enough below. Unavailable in record stores, the nine track EP is limited to 1,000 foil-numbered copies on amber vinyl with black splatter. You can pre-order here.

 

Bundled up three cracking new tunes for you this morning in a hear one, get two free kind of deal.

First up an irrepressibly brilliant new track from prolific psychedelic warriors King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Sleep Drifter is the latest track to be lifted from their forthcoming new album, Flying Microtonal Banana, which is released on Heavenly Recordings on 24th February (pre-order here).

Second off the rank is Surfer Blood’s new song, a jaunty slice of indie rock, Frozen is taken from forthcoming album Snowdonia (pre-order here).

Last, but by no means least, Adam Torres will release a new EP, I Came To Sing The Song (also on 24th February via Fat Possum). The title track is a gorgeous folk ballad with a simply stunning vocal performance over gently plucked guitar and violin (pre-order here).

Listen and enjoy!

We really don’t post as many videos as we should… so as usual here is our rather feeble attempt to clear the backlog of some of the excellent musical films we’ve seen recently.
