Perhaps Kate Bush and Lady Gaga cover versions may be unexpected on the pages of Flatland Frequencies but our long time favourite Antenna has done an excellent job with these reimaginings.

This self-released EP is available through Bandcamp as a pay what you feel download.
Some classic tracks almost don’t see the light of day. This track was recorded in 1981 but wasn’t released until 2009. To modern ears, sounding like a crazy Donkey Kong arcade bass over a raw jacking house beat, Video Crash mixed with industrial rock. But who was Carol?
Originally released in 1982 on a self-released single-sided cassette album this track is as cold as they come. Elisa Waut was a Belgian band, from Bruges, and was centered around brother and sister Hans and Elsje Helewaut.
