Local H, Local H's Awesome Mix Tape #2

"Two-man, Chicago band Local H will release their second collection of covers, Local H’s Awesome Mix Tape #2, on December 16th on G&P Records. The series, which began with Local H’s Awesome Mix Tape #1 in 2010, Contains covers of songs by Daft Punk, Lorde, Iggy Pop, David Bowie, George Harrison, Reo Speedwagon and others. “Once again, they're just songs we really like,” explains Local H frontman Scott Lucas. “Picking which songs to do really is like putting together a good mix tape. We tried to run the gamut from bands that most people may not have heard of to songs that never need to be covered again. It kills me that a song as great as Muchacha's ‘Evelyn Mason’ isn't even available on YouTube, but there's also a certain challenge to making the millionth cover of ‘Heroes’ seem necessary. To paraphrase Bono -- it's a song FIFA stole from David Bowie - we're stealing it back.” "
