Wave Of Mutilation
Label: Zoe Records
Yay! It's the '80s! Hey, everyone loves the '80s! Let's all wear keyboard neckties and Vaurnet Cat Eye sunglasses and dance around like Molly Ringwald! Actually, you may want to seek out the Wedding Singer soundtrack or Netflix yourself a copy of St. Elmo's Fire if you're looking for a blast from the past. Grant-Lee Phillips' covers of iconic '80s alternative hits transmogrifies them into moody, acoustic folk songs that would woo the musical heart of Alejandro Escovedo.
