NYLON Magazine BEATLES REIMAGINED
Adventure Galley - "Please Please Me"
What was your goal with your cover? "Our goal for the cover was to create a totally original sounding piece of music that did justice to The Beatles' original song, resembled our own writing style, and yet is completely unique from both. We wanted to do something interesting and different with The Beatles song, but also get out of our own songwriting box and try new things." --Brock Grenfell
Doom & Gloom - "And I Love Her"
How did you make the track your own? "We had just bought this Wurlitzer organ at a thrift store and we were anxious to exment with it. It added so much to the overall mood. Lisa used the piano and organ as the main instruments, instead of the guitar like on the original. I also tried not to sing it as a straight as Paul; I wanted it to sort of feel as if Otis Redding had covered it. It took a lot of different approaches before finding the right one that made it feel like me." --Nate Cole

About BEATLES REIMAGINED:
Featuring contributions from Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros along with nine emerging U.S. indie artists across diverse genres, BEATLES REIMAGINED commemorates the 50th anniversaryof the recording and release of Beatles songs from 1963-4, including "From Me To You," "She Loves You" and "I Saw Her Standing There," which cemented the band's status as rock and roll royalty. Released this week (October 1) via Community Projects 100% of the label's net album sales from BEATLES REIMAGINED will be donated to the Rock n' Roll Camp for Girls Los Angeles (www.rockcampforgirlsla.org). BEATLES REIMAGINED honors the greatest modern songwriters of all time while infusing their music with a distinctly 21st century twist.
These new interpretations are not simply covers but have hotly tipped U.S. indie artists re-envisioning the songs on their own from alternative folk (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros), acoustic folk (The Well Pennies), indie-rock (Mobley), indie-pop (Jhameel), new-rock (Badwolf), new-wave(Adventure Galley) and electro-dance-pop (Night Panther) through downtempo/lo fi(Feverbody), old school soul (Doom & Gloom) and retro-pop (Leftover Cuties). The Beatlesthemselves were influenced by American artists such as Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Elvis Presley, and BEATLES REIMAGINED returns their music to the heartland that inspired them: the United States.
