Here's some news you can use: PF Flyers, to celebrate the archival release of the 1956 Bob Cousy All-American sneaker, asked four indie rock acts on Silverlake-based Dangerbird Records to re-record four hit songs from 1956. The tracks, "The Fool" by Sanford Clark, "Love is Strange" by Mickey & Silvia (yes, that's the song from Dirty Dancing), "Wayward Wind" by Gogi Grant and "Green Door" also by Gogi Grant, got the makeover treatment from Darker My Love, Eulogies, The One AM Radio and Dappled Cities, respectively. The resulting tracks are all pretty fab and my favorite is The One AM Radio "Wayward Win" cover. The tracks are available only at http://www.pfflyers.com/dangerbird.
