THE LIMOUSINES RELEASE FREE DOWNLOADS

Before they begin the European leg of their tour with the Sounds at the end of the this month, Campbell’s Limousines have posted two covers for free download at their website, thelimousines.com.

It’s rare for the band to cover other artists; even live, they usually stick to originals. These two songs have been the exception. One of them, New Order’s “Temptation,” the Limos have been playing live off-and-on for quite some time now. The studio version available for download is fairly faithful to the original, though lead singer Eric Victorino is a more emotive vocalist than Bernard Sumner ever was. It’s yet more proof of New Order’s huge influence on the current electro bands.

The second one may surprise fans of the band who haven’t heard them perform it live yet, it started popping up in their set late last year. It’s Paul Simon’s “You Can Call Me Al,” and it diverges quite a bit from the original, with an extended ambient opening and some great percussion (don’t know if it’s from their live drummer, Dino Campanella of Dredg, or programmed by Gio Giusti).

The Limos are also issuing their first EP, Scrapbook, on CD for the first time (it was vinyl only when it came out in 2009). They’re letting fans who pre-order it write a personal dedication that will be included in the packaging; the details are also at their site.
