[PLAYLIST] The Best COVER SONGS of 2012

TBE-Best-of-2012-Covers

Cover songs are still my favorite way for emerging bands to put their own sound on a hit song and get easy attention. However 2012 was for some reason a slow year for cover songs. Luckily a handful of bands did them well and left us with flipped and twisted takes on old classics and net hits alike. Here are my 10 favorites (#1 at the bottom). What did I miss? Read more

[MP3/COVER] PK – “Chase The Sky” + “Not In Love” (Crystal Castles & Robert Smith Cover)

i know you’re running away, yeah in your past there’s a ghost and he’s following

♫ PK – Chase The Sky

  • Who: Travis, Nick, Matt, Mikel, Rico
  • What: Indie pop rock , like Northstar, Saves The Day, Moneen
  • Where: San Luis Obispo, CA + Facebook
  • When: Buy new EP The Lost Boys Sessions now.
  • Why: Click on any of the band links above and you wont get a post by this site. That’s because they are all pre-TBE. That golden age of alternative/post-punk/emo/indie rock that was filled with as many hooks as raw edges. PK are boldly going where many have gone before and reminding us that its a pretty damn fun place to be. Guitars, hooks, and driving rhythm sections. Listening to “Chase The Sky” makes me rather be at one of their concerts than most of the ones I’ve been to recently. Which is lucky because they will be playing alongside Jhameel and Y Luv in a show The Burning Ear is damn proud to present. October 23rd, right here in LA at the Silverlake Lounge. Book your flights now.

♫ PK – Not In Love (Crystal Castles & Robert Smith Cover)

BY THE WAY! Did I mention that they cast magical spells on this Crystal Castles/Robert Smith joint and conjured up this cover that I can’t stop listening to. If they play this live I will pop.
