The Advantage - Elf Titled
The Advantage are a cover band featuring Hella guitarist Spencer Seim. Instead of shredding, Spencer hops behind the drum kit with some pretty impressive results. When I first heard Elf Titled, I just assumed the manic drumming was the work of Zach Hill. As far as the covers here go, you won't hear any standard bar-rock fare. Instead, The Advantage focus their incredible musical chops on producing badass renditions of classic NES game themes. You're really in for a nostalgic trip with this one. The spot on Mega Man II cover will have have you screaming at your television and throwing controllers across the room . Air Man was fucking impossible to beat. I digress...
If you're a fan of old school Nintendo jams and/or pre-vocalist, pre-touring-with-super-shitty-bands-and-playing-arenas Hella, you'll dig this.
