Myspace // "February 14" and "Memories" [stream]
The Cloud Room recorded a special Valentine's Day present for everyone. Click over to TheCloudRoom.com/Fake7Inch to listen to two covers recently recorded by New York City band. Side A is their take on Huggy Bear's "February 14," a song brimming with buzzy punk energy mixed with arrogant art house bravado. Side B is an epic rendition of Leonard Cohen's classic "Memories" that's thoroughly enjoyable. Neither song is a classic schmaltzy love song, which is probably why the covers will work for the remaining 300-odd days of the year.
