There are SOO many great covers out there (many great remixes, too) and typically we just focus on new music since that is what we are about. Since starting Twitter Tuesday it’s been fun to find bands that I wouldn’t normally have found or sought out and with posting covers by new and up and coming bands, or possibly even a singer songwriter that has a youtube channel and a guitar – the main focus will still be focusing on new and emerging artists. This is a great way to still introduce new(er) bands but they will be paying homage to their influences which could be in the past or the present. To be fair to the bands, we will also be posting a track from their most current work in case you are not familiar.
The first CoverBack Thursday post goes to Oxford, MS band Young Buffalo who just posted an awesome cover of the Beach Boys‘ Hang On To Your Ego on SoundCloud. After seeing them live last year, the vibe with their current tracks had that Beach Boys’ feel but mixed with a much more rockin’ tone. It’s only fitting they pay homage to The Beach Boys. We are also sharing one of their tracks from their newest album Home which was released in March and is available to purchase on i-Tunes.
If you are a band, have a killer cover and want to be considered for our CoverBack Thursday, just tweet us a link.
