New Wave Donut compilation

On March 1, Wax Donut Records is releasing a covers compilation called New Wave Donut, which features contemporary heavy bands taking on songs from the new wave and post-punk era of the early ’80s. Two tracks have already been released from the compilation, and today, two more make their debut. Noisy Buffalo hardcore group Science Man offer up a manic and searing take on Suburban Lawns’ “Gossip,” while Pennsylvania avant metal troupe Bovine Nightmares offer a warped and gothic metal take on Eurythmics’ “Here Comes the Rain Again.” Hear them both below.

On their cover of Suburban Lawns’ “Gossip,” John Toohill of Science Man reveals, “I only discovered Suburban Lawns in the last five or ten years when reissues of their sole LP started popping up. Wild and fun new-wave on the surface with a bit of a demented, art-punk underbelly that occasionally pushes it to uncomfortably strange. I can see why they didn’t get more popular. So, when Morey asked me to do a cover for this comp, ‘Gossip’ seemed like the perfect sonic and lyrical image to project through our hardcore lens.”

Bovine Nightmares’ Erikk The Broken adds about their cover of Eurythmics’ “Here Comes The Rain Again,” “Just as readily as rainwater can impregnate a garden before famine, can a single day bounce one between ecstasy and despair, festering like a morning dew on a field lush with rot.”
