A somewhat surprising announcement from the Old 97s this week - they will be releasing a 4 song covers EP, entitled Mimeograph, next week. The album will be available for download on Amazon (and elsewhere probably) and physical copies apparently will be available only through the band's Web site or at live shows.
The track listing will be as follows:
"Rocks Off" - Rolling Stones
"For The Girl" - The Fratellis
"Driver 8" - R.E.M.
"Five Years" - David Bowie.
The band also just announced that you can get three live recordings for free if you Like the band on Facebook. Check out the "Notes" section on their facebook for details. The three tracks are "St. Ignatius," "Victoria," and "Four Leaf Clover."
