Brooklyn fuzz-rock duo Lightouts are known for backing their maxi-singles with cover tunes, having taken on The Stone Roses, The La’s, and a Bowie/LCD Soundsystem mashup in the past. For their latest single, “The Cure For Shyness,” the group takes on Guided By Voices’ 2004 track “The Official Iron Man Rally Song” and we have the cover for you to download below. The original tune comes from GBV’s Under the Bushes, Under the Stars, the last record recorded with the band’s “classic” lineup until their recent release a couple weeks back.
The single will be released on February 7th and Lightouts are currently finishing their debut LP, Want, which will be released this spring. Enjoy.
