Bands that cover famous songs are a lot like bands that cover unknown. They get what other artists are thinking when they write a song. On their new maxi-cassette, Tropical Fuck Storm covers The Stooges like they were meant to. Hazy where it matters and passionate where it hits, the band gives their best when the song hits. Their cover on”Ann” is pretty classic and you can hear it here before they leave on tour.
The song has a unified sound where vocals are out together to make a point. The opening words are wild in how they play out, together without pause. These weird sounds make their way in against the vocals and create their own presence. The inner parts seem as enigmatic as the outer parts. The rocking out while wild sounds converge and the inner seems to come out and offer itself up. When it all hits at the same time it creates a sound that sounds like nothing else.
The song can be streamed above or wherever you stream music. Their limited edition cassette is available from Joyful Noise here. Tropical Fuck Storm will be on tour starting July 30 for the Bandcamp screening of Goody Goody Gumdrops until November 05 in Brooklyn, NY at Music Hall of Wiliamsburg. Their tour is available here.
