Thanks to music blog Southern Souls and creative mastering studio Mojito, the world has met indie bliss in the form of a collaboration between The Elwins and Luke Lalonde of Born Ruffians fame. The two came together at the Verge Music Lab to record a skilled performance of Beyoncé’s “Countdown,” the first in a cover series called “The Mojito Sessions.”
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).
