Recording: The Flowers of Hell

Artist: The Flowers of Hell

Songs: Atmosphere [Joy Division cover] + Love Hurts1

Recorded at The Tranzac (Main Hall), September 21, 2012.

The Flowers of Hell - Atmosphere

The Flowers of Hell - Love Hurts

Full review to follow. Even at the release show for a covers album, Flowers of Hell are never a band to take the easy route, so the night included a few originals from the band's repertoire, and as many covers that weren't on Odes as ones that were. The biggest revelation of the night was vocalist Chloe Charles, who was a standout on these two tracks.

1 Hm. Not sure which artist I should say the Flowers of Hell are covering with this Boudleaux Bryant composition. This version doesn't have the bombast of the Nazareth version, the harmonies of Gram + Emmylou or the upbeat schmaltz of Jim Capaldi.
