I saw you this morning, I thought that you might like to know
I received your message in full a few days ago
I understood every word that it said
And now that I've actually heard it, you're going to regret
In keeping with the nostalgia, but with an eye towards things a bit more new school, I present one of my favorite recent covers: "Age of Consent" by Philly band Cayetana. I'm a huge New Order fan, and their older stuff will always hold a special place in my heart. This one is a bit of a unique take, but also really solid and carries the essence of what made New Order so awesome. Yeah, and Peter Hook's awesome baseline too. :)
I've also really been digging Cayetana and they're way up on my list of bands I'd like to see live. Their usual stuff is a bit different from this cover, but if you're into catchy, well-done punk rock, you should give them a listen. Their first full length, Nervous Like Me, is terrific.
