"Open Fire" was on a Paste sampler a couple of years ago. My mom really loved it, and I always put it on mixes that I made for her, along with The Weepies and Jackson Browne. Listening to it now, I realize don’t really like it the way I used to. It’s kind of like a high school crush. Yeah, they’re still cool, but you’re disenchanted with them.
After living up to serious hype at Juice Jam 2010, Mouth’s Cradle has released a cover of “Summer Girls,” which will be on the upcoming EP Mouth’s Cradle vs. the Hype. Here’s the official statement from Moufy and Rogers:
Life is too short, isn’t it? Human beings have always been trying to find a way to live forever, and recently we’ve learned that writing a catchy hook can be a surefire path to immortality. After spending the last few weeks poring our creative energies into an updated version of “Summer Girls” by LFO, which we’ve titled “Chinese Food”, we at Mouth’s Cradle are especially sorry to hear of the passing of LFO member Rich Cronin. We hope that our interpretation of the track stands as a tribute to him and to the undying nature of Pop.
