The Engine Room will be celebrating their newest Guilt By Association release this Saturday [January 31] at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg with performances by the Robbers On High Street, Jukebox The Ghost, Takka Takka and Lowry. In honor of the first of two celebratory performances, we're giving you Takka Takka's far moodier -- and less American Psycho glam -- version of Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight".
Aside from the January 31 show, the plan is to have Francis And The Lights, Savoir Adore and The Bloodsugars also celebrate the release next Saturday, February 5 at Bowery Ballroom. Aside from Takka Takka, Volume 2 features Robbers On High Street doing New Edition, Matt Pond PA covering My Chemical Romance and Cassettes Won't Listen covering INXS.
Guilt By Association Vol 2 was conceptualized and produced by Wesley Verhoeve and lends towards danceable covers of some of the artists favorite pop songs, while the Guilt By Association series was conceived by Peter Block, co-founder of Engine Room Recordings. The first volume was produced by renowned music supervisors Randall Poster and Jim Dunbar (All Wes Anderson films, Squid & The Whale, Lost, etc.) and included tracks by indie luminaries Devendra Banhart, Will Oldham, Petra Haden and many others.
