It was only a matter of time before The Long Winters would record a song by the most famous bearded band of all. And ZZ Top’s Gimme All Your Lovin’ is quite obviously the perfect choice for Starbucks Valentine’s compilation called Sweetheart. Described by John Roderick as ‘so fantastically wimpy that it’s an act of violence against rock music’ , expect to be surprised by a dressed down version of this 80’s classic.
Other contributors to Sweetheart 2010 include Spoon, Yo La Tengo and fellow Barsuk act Mates of State. The album is available on iTunes and can be purchased in Starbucks stores.
