Paper Bag Records Cover Madonna's True Blue Album

Paper Bag Records is celebrating eight years as a label and their new website by releasing a tribute album covering Madonna’s 1986 album True Blue. The label asked their roster of artists — including Born Ruffians, PS I Love You, The Rural Alberta Advantage, and You Say Party (RIP) — to record songs from the album, which is 25 years old this year. There were great songs to chose from — the album includes big Madonna singles like “La Isla Bonita,” “Live To Tell,” “Papa Don’t Preach,” and “Open Your Heart.” The latter was covered by Montreal-based trio Young Galaxy. Their version of “Open Your Heart” is light and airy, with little more than two keyboards and a drum machine behind singer Catherine McCandless’s voice. It’s a nice contrast to PS I Love You’s “Where’s The Party,” which is all crashing guitars and anguished vocals (that one is also below).
