Heliotropes at Cake Shop earlier this month (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Heliotropes

As tends to happen around Halloween, we've been getting a handful of thematically appropriate cover songs surfacing today, and this one comes from Heliotropes, who offer their take on "I Walked With A Zombie" by Roky Erickson and the Aliens. They speed up the tempo, but it's otherwise a pretty straightforward take on Roky's swaggering original, and a real enjoyable one at that. Have a listen for yourself below, where you'll also find the song's cover art, designed by Steve Manale (who also did the Scott Pilgrim comic book).

Heliotropes

Roky Erickson is touring and will be in NYC soon.

In other Heliotropes news, NYC Taper just posted his recording of their set from his non-CMJ day party at Cake Shop which you can download at his site.

They covered Nirvana at our non-CMJ show, and its the last song on the recording.
