Doveman Covers Katrina and The Waves for Brooklyn Vegan

In May, Brooklyn Vegan began an EP-length tribute to Katrina and The Waves in celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the release of the band's classic "Walking on Sunshine." Featuring some of the blog's favorite artists, the individual tracks to Sun Salute (cover at left) were released one by one, beginning with 802 Tour alumnus Sam Amidon's cover of "Walking on Sunshine". Since then, Deer Tick, Fucked Up, and Tune-Yards have thrown in tracks ("Sun Street," "Walking on Sunshine," and "I Really Taught Me to Watusi," respectively), creating a decidedly eclectic line-up for the release.

And today, Doveman adds his particular brand of lamp-rock to the mix, joining the party with a cover of "Love Shines a Light" to conclude the BV EP. To hear and/or download the tune, click here. When you're done swaying to Tommy Dove covering Katrina, refresh yourself on the his past work covering '80s classics. Yeah, he's good at this.
