If you love covers as much as we do, you most likely know all about The Blog That Celebrates Itself. In case you're unfamiliar, it's a Brazil based blog that puts together these insane tribute compilations, and then gives them away for free on Bandcamp. Free covers? We're always up for that.
Last week, they released their latest, Just for Life: A Homage to Slowdive. As with most compilations put out by The Blog That Celebrates Itself, it's great, but I usually barely know any of the bands on the compilation. However, track 7 is a cover of "Joy" by Sheer. We definitely love Sheer around these parts, and knowing that one of our favorite fuzzed out guitar pop bands is doing a song by one of the finest shoegaze bands is fairly thrilling. Sheer's version has just a hint more of a pop side than Slowdive's original, but it's a very straightforward cover.
You can listen to Sheer's version of "Joy" below. If you like what you hear, you can get the song and the rest of the compilation over at The Blog That Celebrates Itself's Bandcamp. For more on Sheer, check out their Bandcamp.
