Magic Shoppe Covers The Velvet Underground

If you've been paying attention to If It's Too Loud... for any length of time, you're most likely aware of how much we love cover songs, and how much we love free music. That brings us to being huge fans of The Blog That Celebrates Itself and their free tribute albums they put out virtually constantly. Their latest is After Hours, Velvets in Another View, which is a tribute to The Velvet Underground. Immediately we noticed a submission from Boston's Magic Shoppe. For some reason, The Velvet Underground don't really get credit for being an insane psychedelic band, and "Heroin" might be the ultimate example of their psychedelic side. Because of that, Magic Shoppe take on that song. It's a fantastic rendition, staying right along with the original but ramping up the noise and going a little heavier. It's a noisy and perfect way to play "Heroin."

You can listen to Magic Shoppe's version of "Heroin" below. You can get your own copy of After Hours, Velvets in Another View for free thanks to The Blog That Celebrates Itself on their Bandcamp. For more on Magic Shoppe, check out their Bandcamp.
