Afghan Whigs Tribute: Forcefield ON cover “You My Flower”
When we first solicited recordings for the Afghan Whigs tribute album, we were overwhelmed with the response. There were a number of songs that we loved but just couldn’t fit onto the album. Over the next few days, we’ll be making some of our favorite non-album tracks available for download.
Forcefield ON: “You My Flower”
Forcefield ON recorded a striking version of “You My Flower” – one of the standout tracks of Up In It, the Afghan Whigs’ debut album.
I have to admit, this was a grower for me. The first time I heard the horns come in, I almost swerved off the road. Since that first listen, I’ve grown increasingly attached to the way the band combines the maliciousness of the lyrics with a sugar-sweet vocal delivery and a layered, often complex instrumentation.
You can buy the band’s music through their Myspace page. Be sure to catch them live when they play in and around their home base of Long Beach, CA.
