Spirit Animal–Tonight and Next Monday at The Roxy–Cover Devendra, Yeasayer, Beirut on Free Download LP
Spirit Animal w/ Des Roar, Imagine Dragons and All Wrong and The Plans Change @ The Roxy Mon 2/8
($10 “bottomless beers”–?–if you go to the Roxy, please report back on this)
Apparently it’s Free Music Monday around here. We’re passing this one along more out of curiosity than full fledged endorsement. This unfortunate titled–and equally unfortunate artwork–Brazen Brand is a free remix and covers record download. There is clearly some good taste in cover songs selection. But as far as the actual execution of the covers… er, we’ll leave that up to you to judge. The Ginuwine cover sounds a bit like a Flight of the Conchords pastiche, but we don’t know enough about Spirit Animal (from L.A.–“post-synth” anyone?) to know if they are in on the joke or not.
