get to know: Headless Heroes

Late last year we talked about the group Headless Heroes, and their outstanding LP of cover songs titled, The Silence of Love. The disc came out in Europe and the UK back in '08, and it is finally getting it's release in the US this coming May 19. The collaborative effort features singer Alela Diane on vocals along with Eddie Bezalel and Hugo Nicolson, who put together the project, finding Diane via her Myspace page. Where most covers albums can be quite boring, 'The Silence of Love' has some truly great interpretations, ranging from tracks by Daniel Johnston, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Vashti Bunyan, and even The Jesus & Mary Chain's, "Just Like Honey" which you can check out below.
