New Standards

On their fifth album, the Granite Countertops perform a collection of cover songs by various artists from the 20th century we deem essential for the times, to create a new standard for 21st-Century alternative music.

Starting with a thrashy blast through an all-too-timely Woody Guthrie song and ending with a Velvetesque take on the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band’s most mystical moment of Zen, J Neo Marvin and Davis Jones find profound new corners in some of their all time favorite songs. In New Standards, the duo take on raw material from David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Kevin Ayers, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, John Lydon, and more, weaving their words and music into a fresh new sonic experience. Join the Granite Countertops as they build a vision for the future out of 15 precious pieces of their past.
