Song Premiere: Parting – “All Things Ordinary” / Talk Show Host – “Chips Ahoy”

Posted: by The Editor

It’s no secret that Vagrant Records is one of the most seminal emo/indie labels of the past three decades. In recognition of the label, Wiretap Records is teaming up with Friend Club Records to put out a tribute record to Vagrant, featuring covers of artists from the label’s beginnings all the way up until now–it’s a real celebration of a label that’s been home to artists as diverse as City & Colour, Balance & Composure, and Rocket to the Crypt.

Bands from both rosters come together to deliver some really fun and fresh covers, including No Better, Tiny Stills, and Common Sage. Today we’re excited to bring you an exclusive premiere of not one but two of the covers on Undercover on the Streets. Check out Parting’s take on The Anniversary’s classic “All Things Ordinary” below:
