The New Hammerhands
Covers EP Streaming

Earlier this year, Hammerhands released their utterly devastating first album Glaciers – an album of seething sludgy doom and eerie atmosphere that is sure to pop up on a few end of year lists around these parts. The Mississauga, Ontario based four-piece aren’t resting on their laurels though, and have just posted a short new covers EP entitled 1995 with two new cover songs, which you can stream below.

In case the EP name didn’t give it away, both songs from albums released in 1995 – Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘XYU’ and PJ Harvey’s ‘To Bring You My Love’, respectively.

Hammerhands’ crushing cover of ‘XYU’ is particularly gripping; the band have taken the iconic lead riff and totally made it their own. Meanwhile, the cover of ‘To Bring You My Love’ is a wretched rendition of what was already an emotionally grave track from PJ Harvey. Stream the two tracks above and grab the free download through their Bandcamp page.

If you happen to be in Toronto and reading this, then be aware of this forthcoming show on Friday, where Hammerhands play with the mighty Godstopper, who have a new 7” coming out shortly, and Ayahuasca, the melodic metallers that feature members of Vilipend and Thantifaxath.
