Fellow Texas-raised indie acts Hovvdy and Lomelda have teamed up to release a split EP called Covers. As its title suggests, the EP consists of Hovvdy covering Lomelda and Lomelda covering Hovvdy.
The surprise release follows Lomelda’s M For Empathy, which came out in February (also by surprise), and Hovvdy’s 2018 album Cranberry. The EP is soft and hazy, letting their delicate renditions bleed into one another.
Covers is out digitally today and will also be released on cassette via Double Double Whammy. The tape includes a bonus track and all proceeds will go to RAICES, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees.
