Faux Real

One of the many Record Store Day exclusives coming to your local brick-and-mortar shop on 4/19 is Faux Real, a compilation of “faux songs by real bands” featuring Northeast indie titans Potty Mouth, Bent Shapes, and Radiator Hospital covering songs by fake bands from movies and TV shows. Among the participants is Speedy Ortiz frontwoman Sadie Dupuis, who turned in a warm lo-fi take on the Josie And The Pussycats track “Pretend To Be Nice,” originally penned by Fountains Of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger and performed by Letters To Cleo’s Kay Hanley. Listen below.

  1. Good to see I’m not the only person who has a soft spot for the “Josie” soundtrack. I mean, Josie’s vocals were provided by Kay Hanley. Can’t go wrong there!

    • her Letters to Cleo bandmate Michael Eisenstein did the guitars and Bass on that record too. Double the amount of cant go wrongness.

  2. No Driveshaft? :(
