Covers Of Elves

Splendid reviews the wonderful new Elf Power covers record. Covers are always a highlight of an Elf Power show, the band has a knack for holding an audience captive with a well-chosen cover. Last year in Louisville, the band opened for Guided By Voices (never an easy task), and closed their show with a rousing, rocking version of "I Wanna Be Your Dog," which had the audience eating out of the palms of their hands.

Last week at the Orange Twin Music Festival, the Elves ripped through the Bad Brains "Pay to Cum", and closed out their set with the live cover that always has the audience hopping, Brian Eno's "Needle In The Camel's Eye". When these guys are on, there are few more entertaining acts in music.
