The “I’ve been gone so long, so here is a bunch of covers” post, or this post title is soo long it could be a Sufjan Stevens album demo.

Covers as impersonation?  Discuss.

So I have been away from posting new stuff (or old stuff for that matter) – due to day to day life getting in the way.  I know, this is no excuse – in a cut throat world of mp3/music blogging this comes as a hollow excuse disguised as a “reason”.  Well, dear blog readers, take this as my olive branch, my most humble of apologies for the fade to black around the blog this past week.

So, what better way to provide a pick-up for the masses?  Well, why not put a bunch of “indie covers” on the blog!!  Come on, everybody loves covers, and as shameless of a post this is, you know you will like some, already have others and secretly wish you had posted the one or two.  Regardless, we have a good week upcoming (if I get around to it) – with some giveaways (CD and shirt) so keep tuned, you never know what you may walk away with…other than the below covers!  Most, if not all, have made there way around the blogs, and at least half have already been on this blog, but here they all are once again, in one convenient post.
