The Other Sounds: September

Finding out your favourite band has done a cover of a great song, always feels like getting that bonus strand of Kway Teow in your bowl of Fishball Bee Hoon Soup.  It’s even more awesome when said favourite band releases a song that’s completely different from their usual sound – then, it feels like finishing your Bee Hoon and discovering a bonus meatball at the bottom of the bowl.

It just goes to show that sometimes, not playing by the rules can really lead to pretty amazing stuff.
