We are 10! Last Gas Station, aka LAGASTA, turns 10 this year, and celebrates its tunefully inspirational road trips through all these years in a very special way: a new compilation of exclusive covers! They invited some of their favourite artists and producers, who have been part of La.Ga.Sta.’s family all these years, to choose a best-loved song of theirs, and make a cover version of it for a new anniversary compilation. The outcome is an exceptional…track compilation that brings the most deserving music to the surface, from George Michael to Siouxsie and the Banshees and from Whitney Houston to Blood Orange. It’s a fusion of different decades and music styles. The 15-track compilation is now available as a free download, artwork by one of the most exciting graphic designers today, Portugal-born, NYC-based Bráulio Amado.
