Last week we featured Manhattan
indie buzzband The Postelles
as part of our ongoing “Blurting With…” series.
Now comes word that the group is offering their new covers EP Summer Undercovers as a free download at
http://www.thepostelles.com and http://www.facebook.com/ThePostelles.
The band indicates that the “release is a gift to their fans for all of their
support over their album release and headlining tour” – their self-titled
record was issued last month.

 

 

The new EP features the band’s covers of The Smith’
“Ask,” Joe Jones’ “California Sun,” Wreckless Eric’s
“Whole Wide World” and The Ramones’ “Beat on The Brat” (a live
version recorded June 8 at NYC’s Mercury Lounge.

 

The Wombats will be taking The Postelles out as the main
supporting act on their entire U.S.
tour, which launches with a CMJ show on October 19th at Webster Hall in New York City and concludes at the Crocodile Café in Seattle on November 12th.
The Postelles will also be playing numerous headline shows and festivals
between now and the end of the year in support of their self-titled debut
album, which was produced by the band and The Strokes’ Albert Hammond, Jr.
