Song # 2: White Faces (Roky Erickson Cover)

Carnival-Of-Souls-photo-5

Roky Erickson was in one of the first psychedelic rock bands, The 13th Floor Elevators. When he formed Roky Erickson and the Aliens, he adopted a more hard rock sound and wrote horror themed songs. Choosing to cover this song was easy since it has always been one of my favorite songs from his The Evil One album. I’m most happy with the ethereal quality I was able to achieve mixing the sound of the guitar and vocals. It adds an element to the song missing from the original, but really compliments it.
