The D.C.-area early-’90s twee-pop originators Black Tambourine are back together and ready to release their first new record since breaking up in 1991. In May, they’ll release OneTwoThreeFour, an EP of Ramones covers. And below, we’ve got one of the EP’s tracks: The band’s blissy, fuzzed-out take on “What’s Your Game,” a sweetly spiky pseudo-ballad from the Ramones’ 1977 sophomore album Leave Home. The Black Tambourine cover has backing vocals from Dum Dum Girls leader Dee Dee, as well as members of the Softies, Tiger Trap, and Honeymoon. Download it below.
