Vermont's very own it-band Chamberlin covers a Kanye West tune and releases Chamberlin Cabin Covers EP to aid Vermont flooding victims.

Vermont’s very own it-band Chamberlin released their debut, Bitter Blood, last winter and have now stepped up to offer help with relief for Vermont’s flood victims. Next week the band presents Chamberlin Cabin Covers EP, which directs all proceeds to Vermont’s United Way. The EP features cover versions of tunes from the likes of Cults, Vampire Weekend, Foster the People and mega-star Kanye West. Today, we present the online premiere of that Kanye West cover, “Lost in the World”, and hope that you’ll step up to purchase the EP when it drops on 20 September.

Hurricane Irene was pretty much the worst natural disaster to ever hit Vermont and the people there could use your help. Guitarist Ethan West says, “Growing up in a land locked, mountainous state like Vermont, we never really had to worry about natural disasters, so when Irene hit, no one was prepared for storm and subsequent flooding. Entire farms, roads, bridges and buildings were destroyed all over the state. Our new EP was recorded at our cabin in the heart of the damage—in the town closest to us, entire houses were washed away and they were cut off from the rest of the world for almost a week.”

Check out the new EP next week and catch the band on one of their upcoming tour dates (listed below).
