"The Hood Internet covers The Pretenders"
The guys in The Hood Internet made their names mashing up indie-rock and hip-hop into brilliant, often hilarious combinations. (Check out the classic R. Kelly versus Broken Social Scene mix!) They've released six free mixtapes now, all available at their website. The latest includes such clever combos as Tyga Vs. Neon Indian and Whitney Houston Vs. Chromeo. The duo will release their first album of original productions this fall on Decon, and it includes contributions from Carl Newman, The Rosebuds, Psalm One, and lots more. So it made sense that they fleshed things out for Undercover: Stv Slv and ABX are joined by the ladies of Chicago band Coins as well as Dan Didier (of The Promise Ring and Maritime, both Undercover alums) on drums. We didn't expect a straight-up cover of The Pretenders classic "Back On The Chain Gang," and indeed we didn't get one. Instead: Listen up for Gucci Mane and Rick Ross. Hood Internet tour dates below!
