Introducing Stay Home, a Polyvinyl Record Co. compilation featuring 16 tracks including previously unreleased music, demos, and covers.

We’ve been especially inundated with covers this past month, though most have been recorded live from the artists’ living rooms. Hazel English’s contribution to the covers-heavy Polyvinyl Stay Home compilation, though, is considerably less of a novelty item, taking the impossibly dreamy Mamas/Papas joint and cranking up the dreamy factor. It’s stripped to the essentials—vocals, guitar, tambourine, and a Mellotron cameo, making for less emphasis on the plot and more on its unique stylizations .

There are some tracks from recent Polyvinyl releases and some previously unreleased material. That includes Owen covering the 1975’s “Me,” Xiu Xiu covering Kim Jung Mi’s “Haenim,” Palehound covering Karen Dalton’s “Something On Your Mind,” Squirrel Flower covering Emmylou Harris’ “Icy Blue Heart,” and Hazel English covering the Mamas & the Papas’ “California Dreamin’.” There’s also new songs from Chris Farren and Radiation City, and demos from of Montreal, the Get Up Kids, Yumi Zouma, and STRFKR.

Stay safe, and stay healthy Polyvinyl family. Some gems in this one

Stay Home Polyvinyl

Polyvinyl has just released the Stay Home compilation, which features previously unreleased music, demos, and covers from 16 artists on their roster, with all proceeds going directly to the artists. “What originally began as a way to help support the Polyvinyl artists affected by COVID-19, quickly grew into a project spanning more than half of the label’s active roster,” the label writes. And as you might’ve guessed, “The compilation’s titular theme, Stay Home, doubles as both a social plea – a worldwide effort to help ‘flatten the curve,’ while giving nod to the sprawling classic on American Football’s landmark self-titled debut.”

The covers include American Football frontman Mike Kinsella doing an exceptionally gorgeous cover of The 1975‘s “Me” under his Owen moniker, Palehound doing Karen Dalton‘s “Something On Your Mind,” Squirrel Flower doing Emmylou Harris‘ “Icy Blue Heart,” Hazel English doing The Mamas & The Papas‘ “California Dreamin’,” and Xiu Xiu doing Kim Jung Mi‘s “Haenim,” and there are also demos by The Get Up Kids, of Montreal, Yumi Zouma, and STRFKR, a new Chris Farren song, and tracks by Pedro the Lion, Kero Kero Bonito, and more.
