There's love for the pop and rock canons in every note Cobra Verde write, so a mirthy, clever, and well-played covers set from the Ohio combo isn't any kind of surprise. "Get the Party Started," well, gets the party started, and the oft-licensed Pink jam proves its unfailing pop mettle. Verde vocalist John Petkovic channels a particularly lecherous Greg Dulli as fuzz guitar whines in the background and the (live) percussion bumps along with smutty insistence.
