Lou Reed tribute teases the Living Room's covers project

Posted By on Mon, Nov 4, 2013 at 1:48 PM

The Living Room Recording, last week, announced its in-house rhythm section's Cease and Desist covers project by releasing a Lou Reed deep cut performed with Miami garage-punks Jacuzzi Boys. The song, "I Can't Stand It," is a Velvet Underground original that was reworked and recorded for Reed's 1972 solo debut. This version pairs the Jacuzzi Boys with studio owners Ed Rawls and Justin McNeight, serving as producers, arrangers, and rhythm section. Though the Jacuzzi Boys' slick sound makes this version much cleaner than the original, it's still a moving tribute due to recent sad news.

According to a press release from Living Room Recording, Cease and Desist involves Rawls and McNeight working with notable studio alums, including local bands Mastodon and the Black Lips, to cover songs by artists ranging from goth pop pioneers the Cure to R&B singer/songwriter Bill Withers.

"I Can't Stand It" is available as a free download for a limited time via the studio's Soundcloud page.
