I was trying to figure out what Cocoanut Groove reminded me of. Belle and Sebastian meets The Birds meets Juan Esquivel? I don't know. The answer is in there somewhere.

A neat little release of covers from this band from Spain. Spain, yes.

I mean. There's a cover of "Love Vigilantes" which might be one of my favorite New Order songs. Shit, probably one of my favorite songs in general.

I'm a sucker. But this is decent.

The Free Fall Band - Songs Our Days Pass Along. iTunes.
