A surprise 2 song Walking Bombs covers EP for you folks today, recorded May/June during quarantine. The artists Gridfailure and Globelamp helped with various elements on the EP as well.

All ongoing sales of this release will be donated to the Marsha P. Johnson Institute: marshap.org#

Here are two lo-fi covers I did this Spring from home with additional support from Gridfailure and Globelamp on certain aspects. It was unintentional, but both songs deal with different aspects of relating to the concepts of self and relationships.

“I Can’t Stand” is one of my favorite Zola Jesus songs and covering anything by her is clearly friggin’ daunting because she is so talented, like a miraculous forest spirit. I think it is cool we have the same birthday. I wanted to focus on feeling the emotion and letting it be my own respectful manifestation of a song I love which I find incredibly moving. People can find themselves alone for many reasons, especially for being different. I wrote Nika and asked if it was ok to try to pull off and she gave me blessing to cover it, which was super awesome. It was also wonderful to have Gridfailure and Globelamp help me with recording different elements for max vibe!”

“Jealous Again” is one of the most aggro Black Flag classics and, frankly, I wanted to yank some of the frankly awful machismo out of it and make it a melodic but twitchy sort of examination of the mechanics of paranoia (without revealing if it’s unfounded or not). Now with Dave Brenner’s help it sounds like a wet cave full of ghosts. The slight organ added was fun because it is this monstrous thing that has apartment hopped with me and my partner and we never plugged in much until now. Oh, and I snuck a Biz Markie Easter Egg in there.” – Morgan Y. Evans
