Hand In Glove: The Smiths Tribute (CD)
Release Date: 01/11/11
Indie Rock tribute to The Smiths featuring Vanilla Swingers, Q-Burns Abstract Message, Rosewater Elizabeth & Home
Hand In Glove - The Smiths Tribute featuring 14 classics including 'There Is a Light That Never Goes Out,' 'I Know It's Over,' 'Reel Around the Fountain,' and yes, 'Hand In Glove.' These timeless tracks are covered by a diverse range of indie acts including Home, Vampire Slayers, Thee Chinadoll, Skinnys 21, Rosewater Elizabeth, Vanilla Swingers and Q-Burns Abstract Message. Vanilla Swingers present a lackadaisical, understated gem of a duet with 'Hand In Glove;' melodic with a retained and aloof, knowing attitude. 'Vampire Slayers version of 'What Difference Does It Make' is a fun romp with a loose shambolic Ska vibe and some jazzy trumpet. The haunting, tremulous version of 'I Know It's Over' by Rosewater Elizabeth is a delicate, reverent interpretation, while Q-Burns Abstract Message's instrumental rendering of 'Reel Around the Fountain' is undoubtedly dreamy and beautiful.
