Shovels and Rope

Shovels and Rope

The pleasure is all ours in announcing this Blue Series single from Charleston, SC's own Shovels & Rope. Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent are definitely our favorite inter-gender rock n roll two piece since... well, you know (somewhere Alison Mosshart yells "WTF?!")... and we're certainly excited to present this Blue Series single featuring two covers of real life titans of the biz. Side A gives us Shovels & Rope's piano heavy take on Bruce Springsteen's "Johnny 99" while the flip is a slinky hip shaking version of Tom Waits' "Bad As Me". This is the perfect soundtrack for two doomed souls dancing in the glow of a jukebox in a greasy spoon diner... We reckon Messrs Springsteen and Waits should be mighty proud.
