July was a busy month here at Cover Me. How busy? Let’s put it in some perspective. Last July we wrote 11 posts. This July? 46. Not too shabby. With things coming so fast though, it can be easy to miss something cool. So once a month we round up some of the month’s most popular posts, plus a few personal favorites. We’ve got July’s best Features, News, Videos, Downloads, and Songs of the Day laid out below. See what you missed; see what you want to revisit; see what you want to tell your friends about (nudge!). Plus, don’t forget, only three days left to vote for what disco hit you want to hear the Peptides cover! It’s a tie as I write this, so start campaigning for your pick!
As always, feedback is appreciated. Drop a note in the comments below and let us know what you think about the site, the posts, or just the month of July in general. See you in August!
