Last year this indie-rock trio presented their fans with the same gift – a Free Valentine’s Day covers EP. This year the Mobius Band is keeping up with what might become a great tradition! Check out their 2009 free covers EP entitled “Empire of Love”. You can find some great renditions of Tom Petty, Dixie Chicks, Kanye West & Everly Brothers. Enjoy!

From the Band:

Happy Valentines Day!

We had a great time making LOVE WILL REIGN SUPREME (2008’s Valentines Day covers EP) at Noam’s house last year. So we had a lot of ideas of how to do another one for 2009. Do the whole thing over the internet? Record everything in one day? Only Tom Petty?

Eventually we decided to make use of a momentarily empty house (except for three rugs and a leftover piano) in North Bennington, Vermont. We brought in everything ourselves, like we were camping: food, pots and pans, toilet paper, blankets, forks, sleeping bags… and a few tons of gear. It was zero degrees outside most of the time and felt more or less like camping on hardwood floors.

1 Say You Will (Kanye West)
2 Love Hurts (Everly Brothers)
3 Lullaby (Dixie Chicks)
4 Satellite (TV on the Radio)
5 At My Window (Townes Van Zandt)
6 You Don’t Know How it Feels (Tom Petty)

If you liked this cover EP, the last year’s Valentine’s EP “LOVE WILL REIGN SUPREME” is still available for download! Yey!
