No Vacation Cover The Cranberries’ Debut Album

We’re very excited to announce the lucky thirteenth edition of our SOUNDS DELICIOUS series. This time around our good friends in No Vacation are paying tribute to the late Dolores O’Riordan with a full album cover of The Cranberries’ debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?

The fine people at Paste Magazine were kinda enough to premiere the album’s first single, “Linger,” earlier this afternoon as their Daily Dose (i.e. today’s “song you absolutely, positively need to hear”). We’re super duper extra proud of this one and the work No Vacation put into it.

Nat from No Vacation had this to say about the album:

One of the biggest challenges in this process was trying to create something that in essence is still the Cranberries, while also sounding like No Vacation. The most difficult part of recording was figuring out where to start, but after we had established a plan and vision, the rest followed.

I think that in covering this album, it allowed us to expand by working on various instrumental parts that we wouldn’t have been able to do through No Vacation. It allowed us to experiment with different sounds and processes. I think that the best part of the experience was hanging out and spending time figuring out new ways to record each other at home and made us realize how hard it is to make a cover that represents two ideas in one song.

Harrison from No Vacation talked about how it helped the band in their own songwriting:

My favorite part of making this cover album was that, to a degree, I treated it as more of an inquiry into what sounds and textures we might use or incorporate into future recordings. Since we pushed the boundaries a bit and stepped out of our comfort zone, I truly believe it helped us develop our most recent songs, if not in their entirety, at least in my guitar tones.

Meanwhile, Sab talked about the challenges of tackling a full album cover:

The whole cover process was new to us because we had never thought to cover an album in full. With the passing of Dolores, we knew that we wanted to create a piece that was a tribute to the Cranberries to honor their music.

Although we had known of the Cranberries and their most famous songs, we had never really listened to their music very much in depth.

When it came time to record the album, we realized that many of the songs we hadn’t heard before. It was a challenge to listen to a song that was unfamiliar and otherwise new to us, while trying to recreate it as something of our own and maintain the integrity of it in the process.

No Vacation’s version of Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? is only available by subscribing to SOUNDS DELICIOUS. In addition to a deluxe edition for our Kickstarter supporters, it’s available on white vinyl for members and gift orders of 6-months or more (while supplies last) and on black vinyl for all other orders. As always, each copies comes packaged with an MP3 digital download of the album. As always, it’s limited edition – so act fast! We’re expecting these to begin shipping mid-April.
