O PIONEERS / NEW BRUISES: Under the Influence Vol. 10: 7"

Mar 08, 2010

Well, that was certainly interesting. You guys know the deals with these, right? Two bands, one cover song each. The problem with the whole series was either that I didn’t care about either band, or I didn’t care about the songs they covered. This one is two bands I enjoy with two cover songs I have never heard. I checked out the originals before I started the disc and they are definitely… cover songs. I think O Pioneers cover fit their style more than the New Bruises song (which was “Nu Bruises” by Superchunk, which kind of feels like cheating to me). Recommended if you’re into this sort of things.
