Download: We Versus The Shark -- "Right Away" (Pattern Is Movement cover)
The stars appear to be aligning favorably for Philadelphia's Pattern Is Movement. Not only does the band have a killer new record, All Together, coming out later this spring, but they also just got done playing a New Year's Eve show at The Knitting Factory in NYC with The Dirty Projectors, which you can read about here. The song above "Right Away" is on PIM's upcoming full-length, but fortunately you don't have to wait 'til April to get your paws on it. Not only is it obviously available in digital format here, but you can also get it on a clear vinyl 7'' with the equally strong "Korea" right now. Here's that link.
As you can see, I've also reposted We Versus The Shark's cover of "Right Away" as well. This is part of a very cool project WVTS has taken on, cheekily titled Murmurmur, in which they will cover a different song that inspires the band each month throughout the year. Some of the songs will likely be relatively high-profile acts, but the Shark plans to give plenty of attention to a number of less widely known local groups as well. Either way, it should make for some interesting listens. WVTS is all sorts of talented and they've got omnivorous ears (can that happen?), so I'm really looking forward to hearing what else they dig up. You can read more about their cover project here.
