Adventures in Coverland
Released: Oct 2010
Almost all ten throatily delivered songs on this San Antonio trio's third album are covers; seven of them first appeared on seven-inch vinyl early in 2010. The wide scope tells you a lot: Patsy Cline country and George Harrison Beatles quiet-then-loud; Chicano martyrs Selena (polka-rock tejano, sung in Spanish) and Ritchie Valens (blitzkrieg-bopped Ramones-style); artsy romanticism from the Velvet Underground, Bowie and Joy Division; a Buffalo Springfield protest heavied up for a pivotal historical moment--which, for the Mexican Americans and gay women in this band, 2010 certainly is.
