… it is with a joyous heart that I share with you a free compilation of new recordings where EVERY band on the list did their version of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.” Some of these are bands you might know quite well: Stab City, Geoff Geis, Treasure Mammal. And some will be completely new to you. Some may exist only for this collection!

Our man Geoff from Pizza! and Big Whup now has a second solo release, this time an EP of cover songs! There’s everything from Mariah Carey to Michael Stipe on here (oh, and a cameo with Michael Nhat), so download it before he gets famous and Warner Brothers makes him remove the link!
