Allo Darlin’ Cover Springsteen’s “Atlantic City” and The Go-Betweens’ “Dive For Your Memory”
Having confessed to becoming belatedly enamored with the band Allo Darlin’ and their phenomenal 2012 album Europe, we were pleasantly surprised to discover that R0ugh Trade Records had included a bonus EP of cover songs by the band with Rough Trade’s distribution of Europe. Included on the EP is a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s seminal song, Atlantic City. Turns out the song was instrumental (if you will) in the band’s formative years (2009). Check out below their disarmingly clever and winning cover in which the band throw ever instrument (we might have dropped the recorder/flute bits) and the kitchen sink at the song.
