These Arms Are Snakes "Energy Drink and the Long Walk Home" (Lost Sounds cover)
Published Dec 02, 2014Today (December 2) marks the release date for Atlanta trio the Coathangers' split 7-inch with long gone Seattle outfit These Arms Are Snakes. While we'd already received a stream of the former's cover of Gun Club classic "Sex Beat," you can now check out the flip's TAAS cover of Lost Sounds' "Energy Drink and the Long Walk Home" online.
A juxtaposition of country strums and skewered synth tones take up the quick intro before the since-passed post-hardcore crew explode into a Red Bull-pounding full-band arrangement. Recorded prior to the band's breakup in 2010, the Lost Sounds cover features full-throttle drums, a wacky wobble of keyboard tones, in-the-red guitar damage and the taurine-tinted screams of Steve Snere.
You'll find a stream of the reinterpreted track down below, while the record is available in stores now via Suicide Squeeze.
