Watch Marissa Nadler Cover Dusty Springfield’s “Spooky” With Members Of Cave In, Big Business, Etc.

“Two Minutes To Late Night” have shared footage of their host Jordan “Gwarsenio Hall” Olds performing a quarantine cover of Dusty Springfield‘s “Spooky” with Marissa Nadler (Droneflower), Stephen Brodsky (Cave In, Droneflower, etc.), Dylan Carson (Earth), Coady Willis (Big Business, Melvins, etc.), and Emily Lee (Shearwater, Loma, Snake Oil). “Two Minutes To Late Night” commented:

“Trick or treat! We covered that Dusty Springfield song from every Guy Richie movie (which is actually a gender-flipped cover song). This is our 26th bedroom cover made with the support of Patreon. With so many musicians stuck at home with no outlets, we’re going to keep producing these style videos and use the Patreon to give some money to everyone who has a part in them. Please support our friends by donating to our newly redone Patreon at honorableswords.com.”

Big Business Premiere New Song “Time And Heat”

Big Business have premiered a new song titled “Time And Heat.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Beast You Are,” which will be released on April 12. Coady Willis said the following:

“It’s one of my favorites on the record; it’s a slow-burner. It’s nice to have a shift in the pacing of everything. It’s not a breakneck, blasty song. We’ve been playing it live on the last tour. It’s really fun to play. I think we wanted to do a song that was a little more groove oriented, had some space, kind of a different pacing than most of our other songs. Jared came up with the riff for that one. I think he wrote it kind of around that Mellotron riff. I think it came out really awesome.”

Big Business Premiere New Song “Heal The Weak”

Big Business have premiered a new song titled “Heal The Weak.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Beast You Are,” which will be released on April 12. Jared Warren said the following:

“‘Heal the Weak’ is a musical curse on those who seek to take advantage of people of lesser means. A clarion call of warning to the crust-fisted oppressor.”
