Artist: Sixteen Deluxe
In honor of two excellent performances this weekend at Dia De Los Toadies, today we feature the band Sixteen Deluxe doing a stellar cover of the Lou Reed classic “Vicious.” It’s muscular in all the ways good guitar-centric 90s alternative rock should be, yet maintains the undeniable swagger of the original. It’s about as perfect as covers get.
Recently reunited after a 10 year hiatus, this Austin-based indie noise-pop band is back in action on a limited basis, with only a string of announced tour dates left this year, but much of their past material is available on their Bandcamp page for the awesome price of whatever you want! Even if you don’t buy it’s all free to listen to–and believe me, it’s worth a listen. Give this underrated band a chance and get your guitar-fix today.
