The Polyphonic Spree Announce Surprise Covers Album ‘Afflatus’, Stream "Don't Change"

Texas-based psych pop rock supergroup The Polyphonic Spree have announced the release of a new surprise covers album 'Afflatus'.

This is the band’s first full-length album since 2014’s ‘Psychphonic’, it was recorded live in one evening at the band’s home studio, just before the 2020 lockdown, and features covers of INXS, Daniel Johnston, Rush, Barry Manilow, The Rolling Stones, ABBA, and more. It will be out this Friday, April 16. Pre-order your copy here.

Having just celebrated their 20th anniversary as a band, The Polyphonic Spree are currently at work on a new full-length album of original material, slated for release this fall.

“It was inevitable that the Spree would end up doing this,” said frontman Tim DeLaughter. “We were asked to play a covers show at The Kessler Theater in Dallas and were ready to go, but with the shutdowns starting to happen around the country, we made the last-minute call not to perform. We had all been together for weeks rehearsing, so we decided to get the band together at our home studio and record the entire show live in one take, just to capture it. We knew it was probably going to be the last time we saw each other for a long time, and the next day, everything started to close.”

The record opens with “Don’t Change” by INXS, which the band first performed on their 2010 tour of Australia. “We wanted to pay homage to one of their country’s great artists,” DeLaughter adds, “but it’s also just an awesome song. I love its forward moving, almost gliding feel.”

L.A. indie rockers Warpaint have shared a lyric video for their cover version of Gang of Four's "Paralysed".

The cover features on the tribute album The Problem of Leisure: A Celebration of Andy Gill and Gang of Four, a compilation in honor of the late guitarist, out on May 14th. Get it here.

The song originally features on the post-punk pioneers' 1981 album, Solid Gold.

Warpaint’s Jenny Lee, who produced her group’s version of “Paralysed,” explained in a statement: “’The change will do me good.’ (Damaged Goods). Best piece of advice that pretty much changed my life. Not to mention Dave Allen’s bass playing also changed me forever. Made me wanna play bass."

“It was cool to get inside of ‘Paralysed,’ and for Gang Of Four to give us freedom to freak out in our way… it was a beautiful opportunity and we’re SOOO excited,” she furthered. “It’s an honor actually to be a part of Andy’s tribute.”

Watch: Sorry, Heels Air Music Video For "She Burns"

Italian post punk/darkwave/coldwave band Sorry, Heels have aired the video for their newest single "She Burns".

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their forthcoming new album 'She', which will be available on May 31 through Shades of Sound Records/Wave Records. Pre-order your copy here.

Various line-up changes mark a radical change in Sorry, Heels' sound, abandoning rock standards and diverting their compositions towards electronic music, while maintaining references and sounds linked to new wave and early post-punk. "She" is imbued with dream and synth pop influences with ethereal and suffused atmospheres, it's relaxed and sensual. 

'She' is a work entirely dedicated to the love journey of a woman who faces infatuation, falling in love, disappointment and frustration. Both the lyrics and the sounds were written in an attempt to evoke all the various stages she has gone through.
