Laura Stevenson Covers The Replacements

Since both Jeff and I are fairly obsessed with Laura Stevenson,  we love covers here at If It's Too Loud..., and The Replacements are one of my favorite bands, it's a pretty safe bet that we're thrilled that Laura Stevenson has released a cover of "Alex Chilton." The ode to the leader of Big Star was recorded in Groningen, Netherlands, and is part of Stevenson's just released live album Live at Vera Club. The album is being offered for a pay what you can option with 100% of all proceeds going to benefit Planned Parenthood. The recording is a bit muddled, particularly the beginning of "Alex Chilton," but it's a live album from one of our favorite bands doing one of my favorite band's songs, so how can you really go wrong?

Live at Vera Club is available from Quote Unquote Records here. You can listen to Laura Stevenson's cover of "Alex Chilton" below. For more on Laura Stevenson, including her current tour dates, check out her website.
