Catholic Gaydar - 500 Up (Sloan cover)

I'm not too sure how I stumbled across this band, and to be honest, I'm really not sure how I managed to get past their name (granted, it's better than their previous name "Stiff Kitty"), but I'm glad I did eventually give them a listen. Catholic Gaydar are an electro-pop band out of Halifax, and from the sounds of it they are still in the process of developing a style and some confidence, but there's definitely potential here. I gotta be honest, the thing that initially grabbed my attention was the plethora of interesting covers they do, including this song by former fellow Haligonians, Sloan. It's probably more interesting if you've heard the original, but I enjoyed their electronic take on it. Check out more songs over on their MySpace page, or grab a whole album's worth over at Mocking Music.
