Premiere: Home By Hovercraft's New Song for An Ambitious Texas Music Collaboration

On April 25, Oscillation Records will release the Project in a six EP box set, where each EP has one new song by Borrisokane, one new song by the collaborating band and each band covering an older song by the other. It's a lot going on, so for now we'll focus on one song from one of the EPs: Dallas' Home By Hovercraft covering Borrisokane's "Thank You For Being So Nice and Cooperative," which makes its official debut right here:
So again, that will be one of four songs on one of six EPs included in The Versus Project box set. You can hear Borrisokane's original version of the track here.
