Last year we explored the sounds of Stagecoach drummer Matt Emery’s Pulled Apart By Horses covers EP. It’s an interesting concept that deconstructed the music of the spazz rockers and showed the true level of their brilliance. And Matt Emery is all the more keen for seeing beyond the music’s surface.
A few weeks I noticed he had posted some new material, including reworks of tunes from DZ Deathrays and Tall Ships, both of which you can download for free on his Soundcloud. Once again, these are no ordinary covers. Emery shows that he is a cut above your average musician by delving into the hidden corners of each tune, showcasing the fragility that can so often be lost when dealing with the crunch of electric guitars on the loose.
