Product Description

Have you ever felt embarrassed listening to one-hit wonders or pop gems of yesteryear? Fear not. Your favorite Indie superstars are giving the OK by joining in together for "Guilt By Association", a collection of songs by today's most exciting Indie talent re-interpreting their favorite guilty pleasure pop songs. Petra Haden delivers a soaring acapella version of Journey's anthem Don't Stop Believin'. Will Oldham/Bonnie 'Prince' Billy turns Mariah Carey's Can't Take That Away into a bittersweet synth ballad. Jim O'Rourke, who produced albums for Wilco, Beth Orton and Joanna Newsom transforms the Spice Girls' ballad Viva Forever into something that wouldn't have been out of place as a take out of a Beth Orton session.

Lets all wallow in our guilt and enjoy these remembered gems, indie-style

Can't get enough ironic covers of familiar radio hits? Try out Engine Room Recordings' Guilt by Association, which captures indie notables, such as Devendra Banhart, Jim O'Rourke, and Superchunk, covering the likes of Eddie Money, the Spice Girls, and Shania Twain. Petra Haden's all-voices, no-instruments version of "Don't Stop Believin'" leads off the album for a reason--her voice mimics every detail of the original down to the guitar solo, and the result is pretty close to extraordinary (surely the Journey catalog is rich enough to warrant an entire album of a capella covers?). Luna finds the slink beneath the bubble gum of Paula Abdul's "Straight Up," and the Concretes redeem '90s boy band Take That's "Back For Good," turning in a version that's as warm and sleepy as the original was shiny and plastic. If there's a flaw in Guilt by Association, it's the lack of cohesion that can plague such compilations, and you almost wish the bands had stuck to a narrower range of artists and songs, but any collection that covers everyone from Cher, to Fall Out Boy, to the kids from High School Musical is bound to hit on a guilty pleasure for just about everyone. --Ben Heege

5.0 out of 5 stars This is awesome! October 22, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
The concept of this record was to get independent and underground bands to cover music by more mainstream and contemporary pop bands. And let me tell you- it's so shocking to hear this! It's awesome! You'll wish Goat redid all Fall Out Boy songs after you hear his cover of "Sugar, We're Going Down". And for those of you used to Will Oldham/Palace/Bonnie "Prince" Billy or whatever you want to call him in this incarnation as opposed to his real style- you'll probably crack up like I did! There's synthesizers and everything as he pays "tribute" to Mariah Carey. Other highlights are Luna's cover of Paula Abdul's "Straight Up" and, my favorite, SUPERCHUNK covering DESTINY'S CHILD! LOL! Yeah, I pretty much hate anything on the radio and all these guys provide more accessible versions of pop songs for me. I highly recommend this awesome hilarious compilation =D

And to the guy who gave this one star, have fun with oral cancer that'll likely sprout in a few years =\
