After last spring’s double-disc tribute offering, you might think we’d be done with Guided By Voices covers for a while. Not so. Miami metalheads Torche are releasing three of their own covers on an upcoming split EP with tourmates Part Chimp. They chose “Postal Blowfish” and two Propellers cuts: “Unleashed! The Largehearted Boy” and “Exit Flagger,” which you can listen to below.
Listeners expecting some doomy death-grind through Guided By Voices might be a bit disappointed. The cover is relatively faithful, just a little…heavier. The quartet has already had some deep indie blood running through their veins, so GBV fandom may not be too surprising. Check out “Exit Flagger” below. (via Pitchfork)
