Beach Slang, Of Montreal, Deerhoof Cover Labelmates on Polyvinyl Records Anniversary Comp

BY Gregory AdamsPublished Sep 15, 2016

A bunch of Polyvinyl Records' best bands have got together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the label for a new comp. Finding Beach Slang covering the likes of Japandroids, or Braid giving the business to Alvvays, the covers collection goes by the fitting title of Polyvinyl Plays Polyvinyl.

Due November 25, it's explained in a press release that the Polyvinyl heads asked 20 of their artists to submit a cover of one of their labelmates' songs. This apparently led to a "slew of beloved tracks being re-imagined in a variety of new and surprising ways."

The tracklist further reveals that Owen revamped a piece from first wave Polyvinyl act Rainer Maria, both Shugu Tokamaru and Mates of State take on tracks originally performed by of Montreal, while American Football are paid tribute by the Dodos. Also adding tracks are Deerhoof, Of Montreal, Aloha, Xiu Xiu, Psychic Twin, Radiation City and more
