Song of the day: The New Mendicants – "This Time"

Hooray! A cover version that doesn’t just sound like a copy of the original:

The New Mendicants – “This Time” (2012)

If you’re a fan of the Pernice Brothers and/or Teenage Fanclub, you may be interested in the following blurb on the page I pinched that song from. If you’re not a fan of either of those bands, then feel free to ignore the next five paragraphs:

Taken from The New Mendicants’ first EP, ‘Australia, 2013’, to be released digitally on Friday January 18 + available at all shows on the band’s January/February tour of Australia.

The New Mendicants are Joe Pernice (Scud Mountain Boys, Pernice Brothers) and Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub, BMX Bandits).
