In contrast, "Take Me Out" blends everything just about right. Occasionally individual voices can be picked out, but otherwise it is a melodious blend of sounds that pay homage to Franz Ferdinand.
The best track on the CD is "Such Great Heights." Given how well the group pulled off the Franz Ferdinand tune, it was no surprise that they would give the Postal Service's song the same treatment. The original tune combines driving electronica with emo vocals that result in something almost zen-like. None of this power is lost in the Penny Loafers' a cappella version. If anything, the impact of this song is enhanced in the new format.
You can view the full track listing as well as pick up a copy for yourself on the Penny Loafers website. The group is currently wrapping up work on a new album called Quicksand that will include songs originally performed by Kelly Clarkson, Snow Patrol, and Beck, just to name a few. For a taste of that, check out the video of the group performing Sia's "Breath Me" live in concert.
