cover: La Sera- ‘Watch Me Jumpstart’ (Guided By Voices)

Since 2007, ‘Record Store Day’ has been growing and growing in endorsements, and it looks as though this year is going to be its most bumper harvest to date. One way bands have shown their support for the event is through covers, as we featured last week with Beach Fossils and Wild Nothing commemorative 7” split. Sing For Your Meat: A Tribute To Guided By Voices is as its name suggests- a collection of GVB covers, reworked by artists inspired by Robert Pollard and his Daytonian gang. Fresh from Share The Joy, out last week on Polyvinyl, Vivian Girls’ Katy Goodman has contributed a pretty organ based version of the melancholy ‘Watch Me Jumpstart’. Recording under her solo title, La Sera, Goodman appears amongst numerous other patrons, most notably The Flaming Lips and Blitzen Trapper.
