The Tube. Night Club on the Disney Fantasy I miss it
I have to choose only a few bands for this opportunity… so…
If I had a way for you to meet any band on this year’s Warped Tour, get your photo taken with them AND watch their set from the stage, who would it be?
Your votes on this actually do matter… so reblog if you want your friends to vote for your band to be in the running :)
Allstar Weekend is in the lead right now.
Who would you choose?

YOUNG STATUES- PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, LET ME GET WHAT I WANT
Please reblog and share if you like it!
Some nights (most nights) I can’t fall asleep, so I end up recording songs in my bedroom. I did this today because I remembered one Christmas I begged for a Nintendo 64 and then my cousin got one and I didn’t, what a depressing year. I imagine this is exactly the way Morrissey felt when he wrote this.
But all kidding aside, this song was in the back of my head for the 7” and although it didn’t end up a part of it, I wanted to put it online for people to check out. It’s just a bedroom recording but I hope y’all like it :) Happy holidaze- Carmen
Months after releasing their Acoustic EP, Young Statues has put together the Covers EP, which consists of four covers songs. Based in Philadelphia, PA, Carmen Cirgnano (vocals) Tom Ryan (bass), Daniel Bogan (drums), Matt Weber (guitar) and Andrew Richards started the indie rock band in 2010.
The first track on the EP is “A New England,” a Billy Bragg cover. The song features vocals from Brianna Collins, the lead singer of Tigers Jaw. It’s a cute duet as they harmonize and sing the chorus, “I don’t want to change the world, I’m not looking for New England. Are you looking for another girl?” It’s full of British slang without British accents, and chock full of strummy folky rhythms. Overall, this is a solid cover that makes the track slightly less political than the original.
Next, Young Statues cover Ryan Adam’s “Ashes and Fire.” It has Adams’ country element to it, evoking the simplicity of a man telling a story with his acoustic guitar. But in comparison to the original, it’s missing that jazzy blues effect. The vocals aren’t as raspy Ryan Adams’, but the beauty of this cover is that the differences strengthen this version. It’s more lighthearted and has an unexplainable feel-good vibe to it.
Unlike Katy Perry, the Magnetic Fields version of “California Girls” does not praise the fine, fresh and fierce ladies. Instead, Young Statues sweetly bashes them. “See them on their big, bright screen/ Tan and blonde and seventeen/ Eating non-food keeps them mean, but they’re young forever/ If they must grow up, they marry dukes and earls/ I hate California girls.” And yet, there’s still this calm, relaxing sense that washes over you even though the track is more upbeat. An acoustic touch really brings out the best in this song. It’s less trippy and so much easier to understand.
