Ash and We Are Scientists recently covered a song called “Washington Parks” by Happy Monster (aka Robert Manning), a long time sufferer of Multiple Sclerosis. The collaboration was organised by Robert himself as part of an ongoing project, with the intention of raising awareness about MS, and raising funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, with all proceeds from sales going to them.
You can read Robert’s full post on the cover over here. It’s amazing to see so many people jumping on board this great cause.
Interestingly, as the collaboration is in stereo, each band gets one side: you can hear Ash through the left channel, and We Are Scientists through the right channel.
You can buy the track over here, and watch the video below.
Talk about making my day!
I get home after a long week at school to be pleasantly surprised by an excellent new WAS song, and a new Gorillaz song which absolutely stomps all over Stylo, in my opinion.
“Rules Don’t Stop”
Might review them properly later, but suffice to say I think they’re both very good.
The 5th of April. New single “Rules” will be released from their new album “Barbara” (due out June).
I can’t wait. We Are Scientists hooked me with a few singles from their album “With Love and Squalor”, which is full of typical, yet brilliant indie-rock riffs and melodies. Refining their style with “Brain Thrust Mastery”, where they seemed to mature and branch out in their own direction whilst retaining the infectiousness inherent in their music, I can’t wait for this new album to drop.
