Another Borderline

Earlier this week, a CD arrived, BC musician Kevin Kane's 2001 cover album Timmy Loved Judas Priest. I first heard of it on that CBC Radio 3 podcast about Canadian covers a couple weeks back. The whole thing's available on iTunes, but I just couldn't bring myself to buy a purely digital copy of the album if I could help it. The original release was limited to a pressing of 500 hand-stamped, numbered, and signed CDs, so I leapt at the opportunity to grab it off eBay. The album consists of 10 stripped down acoustic covers with Neko Case and Veda Hille providing guest vocals on two tracks.

Our Lips Are Sealed (featuring Neko Case) [originally by The Go-Gos]
Borderline [originally by Madonna]
Confidential [originally by the Modernettes]
Motoraway [originally by Guided by Voices]
Neon Lights [originally by Kraftwerk]
Golden Brown [originally by The Stranglers]
Ashes to Ashes (feat. Veda Hille) [originally by David Bowie]
Here [originally by Pavement]
Two Sisters [originally by The Kinks]
God Only Knows [originally by the Beach Boys]

Get it here on iTunes or patiently wait on eBay.
