Download of the Week: Falklands

0

I’ve always been a sucker for bands who have the foresight/gumption to put a little thought into their cover art. You know, because the world really needs another CD cover of a black and white close-up of a guitar with a bunch of stickers on it. In any case, Edmonton’s Falklands chose to hire/kidnap one of my favourite artists, Josh Holinaty, for the cover of their latest EP Slumber Party. Aside from the striking visuals, Falklands provide some truly heroic, off-kilter pub rock that ends up sounding unlike anything else you have heard before. Must be the cover art…
