Best Covers: JC Flowers “China Girl”

Delightful indie-jangle-noise-pop from JC Flowers on ATP Recordings. Flowers feature members from Cop, Advert and Novella, this is the DIY supergroup that the lo-fi fraternity have been waiting for. Mastery of melody, junkshop acoustics, sweet reverb kissed pop music in the Stereolab, Pastels, Teenage Fanclub, Tenniscoats mould. Also features a right-on cover of Bowie’s ‘China Girl’.There’s little of their artful understatement that actually lingers in the memory (a breezy cover of Bowie’s China Girl aside), much less that cuts directly through to the heart.
