I made a Weakerthans cover EP

Haven't made a list in like 7 years... Anyway I just finished my first year of grad school so I made a 7-song Weakerthans cover EP just for fun to celebrate. First 5 tracks are more punk/upbeat and the last two are quiet. I promise there's no acoustic guitar on it. List is the track listing. https://jackfraser.bandcamp.com/album/anchorless
1The Weakerthans
Reconstruction Site

"(Manifest)" - What an opener. Sounds even better on the live album. Tried to give it a Japandroids-type vibe.
2The Weakerthans
Reconstruction Site

"The Reasons" - Maybe their poppiest song, this should've been a Can-con hit for sure.
3The Weakerthans
Left and Leaving

"This is a Fire Door, Never Leave Open" - Such a good song. Love the lyrics.
4The Weakerthans
Reunion Tour

"Tournament of Hearts" - I can see why this album is a bit maligned by some people, but this curling-centric song is so much fun.
5The Weakerthans

"Anchorless" - Propagandhi version is better, if a little awkward. Tried to bring that vibe back and added a little emo bridge in there too.
6The Weakerthans
Reconstruction Site

"Time's Arrow" - Underrated gem, think this gets lost amid some similar-sounding tracks on that record.
7The Weakerthans
Left and Leaving

"Left and Leaving" - Maybe their most moving song. Hope I did an ounce of justice to it.
