Album review

Various - Homesleep2: Cover Songs

The key to effective covers/tribute albums is to reinterpret unusual or inappropriate material. Most of the art-rockish bands here do just that. Off-beam versions of ZZ Top's "Legs" (Beardhead), Prince's "Poplife" (Life Without Buildings) and Britney Spears' "Oops... I Did It Again" (Fuck) shed new light on mainstream hits. Elsewhere, obscure classics such as Big Star's "Big Black Car" (Broken Dog) and The Zombies' "Friends of Mine" (Of Montreal) are cool reminders of the originals.
