Katy Goodman (La Sera) and Greta Morgan (Springtime Carnivore) have teamed up to release Take It, It’s Yours, a covers album featuring reimagined versions of ‘70s & ‘80s punk and New Wave songs. They’ve shared the album’s first single, a reviting cover of the 1985 Replacements classic “Bastards of Young.” The album’s title draws its name from the end of the original version of “Bastards of Young,” an ad-libbed aside from Paul Westerberg.

Goodman had the following to say about adding their own twist to the songs: “On the surface a song like ‘Pay to Cum’ seems really masculine, but to me, the lyrics are really more about freedom. You have the right to sing, you have the right to dance. When you have two girls harmonizing on these songs, they take on a new meaning, because you’re listening in a different way.”

Many of the songs were stripped down to reveal “hidden messages that might be obscured by the tempos or the distortion,” according to Morgan. “It definitely shows the durability of these songs,” she says. “If we can re-imagine them as much as we did, it just shows how solid the skeletons of those songs are.”

“We sort of imagined that the artists handed us these songs,” Morgan says. “These songs helped shaped who we are,” Goodman says. “They gave us the songs, and now we get to give them back as our thank you.”
