Here's a fun split 7" platter, the first of two from American Laundromat this year (the other is by John Strom of Blake Babies fame and Dylan in the Movies). It's two covers, though not, as is common, of each other. Brooklyn's Caulfield Sisters convert Jesus & Mary Chain's "Some Candy Talking" into a live, unplugged light-pop drone recorded here by Seattle's WEXP; not bad. Whereas ex-Petrol French singer Peel is more reverent with the Breeders' "Divine Hammer," with uptempo buzzing guitars, beating drums, and a replication of the key harmony. It's as full of infectious energy as Kim Deal.
