Until now, PS I Love You had a good trend going with their covers. First came a version of Robyn’s “Cry When You Get Older,” then a few months later they followed that with Madonna’s “Where the Party?” Their grungy, wailing performance flipped the female pop songs to the heartbroken cries of anguished men.
Last week, Paper Bag Records released PS I Love You’s squalling cover of Madonna’s “Where’s the Party?” on Soundcloud. The included cover art gave us an inkling something was up, and, intrigued, we tweeted asking them if a True Blue tribute album was in the works. We never heard back…but we were right! Three days later, the label is releasing the full set as a free download to celebrate the launch of their new website. Celebration indeed (whoops, wrong album).
For the first time, Cover Me attended SXSW and we return with a ton of new favorites. Over the next couple days, we’ll tell you what we found. None of these artists have appeared on the site before, but you can rest assured you’ll be hearing from them again soon.
