THIS SHOULD MAKE GRUMPY OL’ RAY DAVIES SWOON
One of JamBase’s favorite new bands from 2011, AgesandAges, launches a new monthly cover tune series with us this morning, putting their sweet, subtle minds to a gem from The Kinks’ catalog. Here is the concept, as explained by AgesandAges’ Tim Perry:
Whilst working on our second album, we thought it would be a pretty fun idea to record and release one cover a month for every month of this year. For all you math nerds out there, that's a total of twelve songs. Also, we were hoping to accompany each with a video, shot by our good friend, Jaclyn Campanaro. The songs we'll be working on vary far and wide, but all are dear to our hearts. We're doing this because it's fun and we like music. We're doing this because the record release process can take a while and we wanted something a little more immediately gratifying; something we could give away for free right after we're done making it. And we're doing this because we identify with these songs and we want to express them with our own voice. This, to us, seems pretty fulfilling. Some people might like this sort of thing, others might think it's sacrilege, and still others won't give a shit either way. We on the other hand, are pretty excited about the next twelve months. And if you like it too, well then that's what we call a bonus!
New covers will debut at the end of each month in 2012, and we can’t wait to see what they explore next!
