Scottish fuzz rock trio PAWS are appearing on a new Valentine’s Day compilation that Fuzzkill Records is putting out. Their contribution is a stripped-down, lo-fi cover of Phil Phillips’ 1959 hit “Sea of Love” (also later recorded by Iggy Pop, Tom Waits, Cat Power and others), and that makes its premiere in this post. Listen below.
Also on the split is Pinact, The Bellybuttons, Catholic Action, Elara Caluna, Faiides, FROTH, Fruit Tones, Kill Surrrf, The Pooches, Poor Things, Secret Motorbikes, SHARPTOOTH, The Shithawks, Tuff Love and TWIN MIRRORS. You can pre-order here. All proceeds go to CLAN Cancer Support and the Greater Maryhill Foodbank. There’s also a release party on Valentine’s Day.
