- Covers by Allo Darlin'
2 reviews. Write a review for us »
This EP originally came as a limited bonus CD with initial copies of Allo Darlin’’s most recent album ‘Europe’ but has been deemed exciting enough for a vinyl pressing, although there’s only 300 of these so they probably won’t stick around for long. The title is self-explanatory - this record collects together six covers recorded by the band between 2007-12, twinkling through numbers by the likes of The Go-Betweens, Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC and even The Ramones (although Ramones fans might want to steer clear of the syrupy banjo-and-tambourine rendition on here which ironically did make me want to be sedated).
Their brand of breathy tweepop isn’t really to my tastes but the Indietracks crowd are sure to be charmed by their Suzanne Vega-esque runs through ‘Atlantic City’ and ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’ and a chiming Smithsy take on Darren Hayman’s The French’s ‘Wu Tang Clan’ with a nice crunchy finish which is a surprise highlight due partly to its relative unfamiliarity. Overall it’s nicely done, if a little cloyingly sweet in places.
