Friday Freebie: Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys - Under Your Covers

Considering how much I love free music and covers, and how obsessively I follow Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys, I can't believe this one slipped by me. Every so often Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys will allow their fans to choose songs for them to cover via their Patreon. The latest batch has been made available to us all. Under Your Covers is a twelve song collection that runs the gamut of what you'd expect from a fan chosen covers album. There are the covers that were obviously carefully chosen specifically for the band (Rasputina's "The New Zero," Primus's "The Toys Go Winding Down" which could easily be the name of a song by The Army of Toys...), classic rock favorites ("Baba O'Riley" from The Who, Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here No More," "10538 Overture" by Electric Light Orchestra), and then the ones that are just fun (Imagine Dragon's "Who We Are," "Bills Bills Bills" from Destiny's Child). There's also a great cover of the Iggy Pop classic "The Passenger." 

You can listen to Walter Sickert & The Army of Toys's cover of "Bills Bills Bills" below. Under Your Covers is available now via Bandcamp for a "name your price" download. As always, if you choose free, be sure to give them a follow on Facebook or Twitter. It's only fair after all. If you have the perfect song for them to cover next time, be sure to check out their Patreon. Maybe we can finally force them into that Bell Biv Devoe cover they keep teasing...
