Record Store Day 2011 isn’t until Saturday but Domino Records couldn’t wait to share their releases. And with good reason. We’ll be listening to the whole lot shortly but we wanted to shout about this LCD Soundsystem’s cover of Franz Ferdinand’s Live Alone right now. Check out the Alex Kapranos impression….
The full vinyl release (available in shops) features tracks covered by Deborah Harry, LCD Soundsystem, Peaches, ESG, and Stephen Merritt.
Deborah Harry – Live Alone
LCD Soundsystem – Live Alone
Peaches – Turn It On
ESG – What She Came For
Stephin Merritt – Dream Again
The band are no strangers to covering each other. Franz Ferdinand reworked All My Friends in 2007.
Elsewhere online, a debate has been raging about whether Record Store Day is a good idea. Will you be making a special trip to your local shop this weekend?
