We've Got It Covered #59

As this post goes up I will most probably be standing in the middle of a field in deepest darkest Dumfries at this years Wickerman Festival. This is the first time in years that I will have been to a UK festival and almost ten years since I last went to one were I camped. My last festival was a couple of years back in Madrid which started at 7pm through until the wee hours of the morning, after which we went back to our hotel and spent the next day lazing next to the pool.
I guess it's pretty safe to say that this will be slightly different, although this time round I will be in the artists section as I have balgged my way in with Randolph's Leap. Not that I am expecting 'backstage' to be too different from what everyone else gets. I just pray to fuck that the toilets are a wee bit nicer. Hopefully if I have time next week I will knock together a wee review of my weekend or at least the bits that I can remember.
Anyway, onwards and upwards here's this weeks cover which comes from Edinburgh outfit Seafieldroad and their cover of Walking on a Dream by Empire of the Sun. The song was recently released as the b-side to their new single 'Cramond Island Causeway' which is available to download for free on their SoundCloud. The single is take from their new album which is due out in Novemeber, if you haven't already checked out their debut album, There Are No Maps For This Part Of The City, then I would suggest you do as it's a cracking wee album which might have passed a few of you by as it was released pretty late last year. It's an album that I've found myself going back to a fair wee bit, so I am really looking forward to hearing the follow up.
Anyway, that's enough of rambling for one weekend here's the cover, enjoy...
