premiere: bodies of water | "dear boy"

Our good friend Justin Gage, proprietor of Autumn Tone Records and founder of L.A.'s best music blog, has recruited some of the finest bands from his hometown of Los Angeles to cover the twelve songs that make up Paul McCartney's classic 1971 solo release, RAM. The ambitious, not-for-profit compilation project, appropriately titled RAM On L.A., features stellar, inspired contributions from Earlimart, Radar Bros., Le Switch, Amnion, the Broken West, and more, including this perfect rendition of McCartney's "Dear Boy" from one of my own favorite L.A. bands, Bodies of Water.

bodies of water :: dear boy

The not-for-profit RAM on L.A. compilation will be released as a FREE, high-quality download next week at Aquarium Drunkard. Listeners are encouraged to make donations to No More Landmines, a cause that "helps and empowers communities around the world by removing the threat of landmines and unexploded weapons."

And let me guess... not one will be one tenth of the originals. Great. But at least now we can all pretend we've always loved Ram.

And let me guess. Not one of these covers will come within a million miles of the original. Dear Boy? Check. But at least hipsters can now pretend to have always known and loved Ram.

I like to comment twice.

P.S. they managed to strip all the chord inversions away. Great. Probably don't even know they did, but it blows.

But not as bad as that AWFUL Monkberry Moon Delight cover. People put effort into this? Huh. Looks like this might not get rid of land mines entirely.

When I begin to play this Seal Online game, I first go to buy seal online cegel to buy some my favorite and beautiful clothes to dress up my character. I have spent cheap seal cegel to buy my favorite cloth. I mean we have anime and some necessary seal online cegel based games that do not look really kid dish. Though I will admit with my own seal cegel I went crazy on leveling with DECO. Some of the skills that we can use our sealonline cegel to improve to look amazing, and are fun to just watch honestly.
