i thought mtv unplugged was dead but i guess everything old is new again. guards played a sweet lil acoustic set for mtv (who i thought had nothing to do with music anymore). watch them jam on “dont wake the dead” below or catch their full set over at mtv hive.
guards, the little known band with close affiliation to cults, has released a free download of their new covers 7″ comprised of 3 radical reworks of radical artists… namely metallica, vampire weekend, and m.i.a.
these indie kids who released a pretty damn cool ep last year (also free) have proceeded to entirely rewrite the songs into totally unrecognizable shoegaze mush. well… thanks for the freebies?
