I've posted about how much I like The Duke Spirit here numerous times (heck we even put em on our Best Of list way back in 2004) and this new EP of covers only makes me like them even more. The band really Mazzy Stars it up on this one and they've hand picked some killer tunes to cover (Desmond Dekker's "007 (Shanty Town)", Jessie Mae Hemphill’s "I’m So Glad" and "A House Is Not A Motel" & "A Message To A Pretty" from the late Arthur Lee's band Love) and made them their own. They only released this baby digitally (and only in Europe from what I can tell) on Rough Trade but if you can get your hands on it... do it. The word on the street is that they may be headed over here soon to jump into the studio to record with Chris Goss... sounds killer to me. Hit their myspace for more info and whatever else. Oh two more thing... First, someone posted on here a few times asking me if I like any girl musicians... here's your answer dude. Secondly, my angry beer gut has vanished cuz I watched The Secret. You might wanna get into it.
