A Lull still a top favorite of 2011, cover Bruce Springsteen’s I’m on Fire

Chicago sextet A Lull are one of my very favorite bands coming out of 2011. I have both Confetti and Confetti Reprise on regular rotation, and have since I first encountered them this July.

To keep the buzz going as we enter the slow winter months (and promote a tour that’s skipping MSP), the band has released this Springsteen cover that sounds nothing like the original (which is a good thing)…

MP3: A Lull cover Bruce Springsteen – “I’m On Fire”

But since I never really liked Bruce Springsteen, here’s a favorite track off the band’s Confetti EP release earlier this year:
MP3: A Lull – “Weapons For War”

And a remix by label mates Melting Season:
MP3: A Lull – “Weapons For War (Melting Season Remix)”

I missed their stop in Minneapolis last July, which makes their frequency in my rotation even more painful. And the tour dates through February only come as far north as Madison. DRAT.
