We Heart Joyce Manor’s Valentine of a Lemonheads Cover
Valentine's Day is just around the corner. To mark the occasion, Amazon Music will release two playlists, one for either side of the heart-shaped coin. Okkervil River, Ingrid Michaelson and Hurray for the Riff Raff are but a few of the artists that have signed on to offer up songs for Love Me and its gloomy counterpart Love Me Not, both of which will be available to stream via the Amazon Music platform starting February 3.
Joyce Manor and Tacocat contributed previously unreleased material (more specifically, covers) to the forthcoming playlist pairing. The former outfit, who released their fantastic album Cody last fall, has served up a slowed-down interpretation of the Lemonheads' warm-and-fuzzy anthem "Into Your Arms" for Love Me; Tacocat, meanwhile, are holding it down for the brokenhearted with a punkish take on Dolly Parton's breakup anthem "Why'd You Come in Here Lookin' Like That." Stream both covers below via Stereogum, accompanied by the originals.
