When Suckers released their stomping, modestly Mouse-ing Wild Smile promo cut “Black Sheep,” we had a chance to detail a few of their forthcoming LP’s many finer points. It’s a great album, which deserves a great cover, and that primate whose face ostensibly is grinning and certainly is as colorful as any Quinn Walker photo ever taken fits the bill. Today the band’s made the record available for pre-order, and those taking advantage will immediately receive downloads of two acoustic takes on Wild Smile tracks: the aforementioned “Black Sheep”‘s cascading guitars get subbed for harmonica and glockenspiel, and “Martha”‘s makeover’s still as horny, just with less keys.
Wild Smile is out 6/8 via Frenchkiss. MP3s of these two pre-order exclusive acoustic takes will come to you immediately if you pre-order for $8.99 at suckersmusic.com, and a link to download the record will come to your inbox the day before the official release date. Good deal.
