This week Humpday Covers is proud to announce that it is having a Summer Special.
The start of summer break is just around the corner. In fact, this time next week I will be done with school for the year! Celebrate with me by listening to these covers! Some may just blow your mind-hole!
First Aid Kit -
First Aid Kit - Tiger Mountain Peasant Song (Fleet Foxes cover)
Buy First Aid Kit
Joey Ramone -
We all know the Ramones sound. For this next cover think about a Ramones version of the easy going classic "What A Wonderful World". Sure it may be over the top... sure it may sound like all of the other Ramones songs... But that doesnt mean it is a bad cover. In fact, I think Joey Ramone deserves some credit on this cover. Its exactly what we want it to sound like.

Buy Joey Ramone
Michael Franti & Spearhead with the Gift Of Gab -
Michael Franti covers the Sublime classic "What I Got". Now for some reason Sublime always reminds me of Summer. It could be because of the laidback mellowness of Sublime...almost perfect to just sit back by the beach. Franti and Co. turn "What I Got" into a slightly more reggae version while giving proper respect to Sublime. (Which makes perfect sense because the track is off of a Tribute to Sublime)
