Black Tambourine, “What’s Your Game”

cover-black-tambourineBlack Tambourine‘s total recorded output just increased by 25%. The influential twee quartet’s complete discography, Black Tambourine, contains but 16 tracks, so any new material from the band is something about which to get excited. In this case, it’s OneTwoThreeFour, a four-song, double 7-inch of Ramones covers due out on Slumberland on May 15.

The band’s playing several reunion shows in early April for Chickfactor magazine’s twentieth anniversary, and felt that, since they were going to the trouble of getting the band back together, they might as well try to record something new. Ordering info’s not yet available, but I’m sure if you keep an eye on the Slumberland website, you’ll know as soon as it happens.

You can take a listen to their dreamy take on “What’s Your Game” below. The cut features backing vocals from the ‘Rinettes, ” a one-time only virtual meeting of some of the band’s favorite singers: Linda Smith, Rose Melberg, Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls and Jenny Robbins from Honeymoon Diary.”
