£12.99 – 12″ Vinyl EP & DLC
Fresh off the back of her critically-acclaimed album My Name Is Safe In Your Mouth (2018), Duke Spirit frontwoman Liela Moss follows it up with a beautiful collection of rain-themed cover versions. The four track EP features songs originally released by the likes of Eurythmics, Ann Peebles, Scott Walker and The Cure. She says:
“Maybe because I’m a bit neurotic about tidying, sorting and indexing things in my life, I thought that creating sets of cover versions would be a good thing to record this year. I began making lists and categorising things that are related in my mind but nobody elses! I might do a collection about Weather, Elements, Utensils (watch out for that one)… Stuff that is so every day that we forget to stop and give it a kiss.
“I wanted a plaything, for new ways of production. Making these covers has been a learning exercise and a way to pay homage to songs that have haunted my childhood, including the title which waves a little hello to luscious Karen Dalton”.
