One of the highlights of the Record Company’s deliriously sweaty, deliciously down-home residency this month at the Satellite was the trio’s cover of Freddy Cannon’s “Tallahassee Lassie,” which indeed was more suited to F-L-A than L-A. To hear a Silver Lake crowd shout along to that chorus was a little bit special. Well, it turns out Chris Vos, Alex Stiff and Marc Cazorla have more than that up their sleeve. Today they released the free “Covers” EP that includes Cannon’s classic along with renditions of the Stooges’ “I Wanna Be Your Dog” and “No Fun,” the Grateful Dead’s “New Speedway Boogie,” Jimmy Reed’s “Bright Lights Big City” and this, a smile-inducing take on the Beastie Boys’ “So What’cha Want.” I never thought this song would go well with a side order of biscuits and gravy, but here you go:
