one of my all time favorite songs is galaxie 500′s “tugboat.” probably didnt know that did ya? probably dont care either, but thats cool. i havent heard too many folks covering it, or maybe i just havent been paying attention? one band that i know covered it is athens’ venice is sinking and im not sure who thought it was a good idea to cover said song, but bravo to them cause they pull it off quite brilliantly. its gonna be on their upcoming sand & lines, along with, count em 9 other songs! sand & lines was recorded over 4 days at the historic georgia theatre which sadly burned down in june of last year. i had never seen the place, but from all accounts it was quite special. havent heard the whole ordeal as of yet, but is due out on one percent press on 6.15. judging the record just based off these two songs though, i can say i am more than anxious to hear the whole thing.
new stuff from venice is sinking
