Reunited D.C. twee-core pioneers Black Tambourine will soon release OneTwoThreeFour, their EP of Ramones covers; we recently posted their take on What’s Your Game.” Another of the songs the band takes on on the EP is the heartsick Leave Home basher “I Remember You,” and the Brooklyn trio Violens have mutated Black Tambourine’s version, transforming it into an introverted jungle track. It takes a lot of balls to push a Ramones classic into drum-and-bass territory, and you can judge the results of that ballsiness below. Download the Violens reworking and check out Black Tambourine’s quick run of April tour dates after the jump.
And now, those tour dates:
4/07 – Arlington, VA @ Artisphere (with Lilys, Lorelei, Fan Modine)
4/09 – Hoboken, NJ @ Maxwell’s (with Fan Modine, Rose Melberg)
4/10 – Brooklyn, NY @ Bell House (with Small Factory, Versus, The Lois Plus)
OneTwoThreeFour is out 5/15 on Slumberland.
