News :: New Release: “Engine Room Recordings Presents: A Tribute to Pinkerton”

September 18th, 2012 by Engine Room Recordings | Subscribe To The News Feed [ News]

Nearly two years ago now we had the idea to take a short break from our Guilt By Association cover series and make a tribute to a classic album instead.  And today is the day, our Pinkerton Weezer tribute is finally out!

Always a risk when covering such classic songs but we couldn’t be any happier sharing this with the world, the bands and everyone involved did such a terrific job.  While staying true to the originals they added such unique twists on these classic songs — Wakey!Wakey! replaces guitars for synths on “El Scorcho”, Dinosaur Feathers adds horns and gang vocals to “Tired of Sex” and Rob Cantor of Tally Hall, creates pop magic with his version of “Why Bother?”.  Also included in this set is a beautiful, almost dark, ukulele rendition of B–Side “You Gave Your Love to Me Softly” from Canon Logic.

To listen head over to our store where it’s streaming in full or visit iTunes, Spotify, Rdio, whatever your favorite digital store of choice is and you’ll find it.  Once you do we hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.  Last but not least, we’d like to thank Weezer for making such a great album.
