The Treasures Of Mexico – She’ll Never Get Over Me (2018)

“You only have room for so much stuff in your life. I must do that with songs. I must listen and re-listen and ask and question and challenge and if I’m left holding something that has even the slightest element of doubt surrounding it, I have to let go…So simply put, that’s what we’ve done here. Some songs never left the bedroom, some made it as far as the 8-track, some then couldn’t negotiate the discerning ears of Bob and Russ, and then some were launched into the open sea of the studio but simply didn’t hold water and sunk. We’ve worked on the surviving songs over the last few months, and we’ve shared thoughts and suggestions until we’ve reached a point where we can hold them in our hands and say as confidentially as we can that Everything Sparks Joy.” Source

At first, we thought about Yo La Tengo or Pavement which are our all time favorites but we decided to take the music of legendary bands from a little earlier times to cover in our style.
The first song we picked was Velvet Underground’s Beginning To See The Light. It was a song suggested by Sumi. She strongly recommended this song, because she always admired Lou Reed’s self-confident attitude and genius talent…”Bandcamp
