Aquarium Drunkard, aka Justin Gage, released an awesome project a couple weeks back called RAM On L.A., a tribute to the Paul McCartney classic, RAM. He gathered a bunch of hip, East Los Angeles bands together like Earlimart, Bodies of Water and The Parson Redheads to create a beautiful, contemporary version of this classic record. The album is amazing and it’s suggested that everyone who downloads the songs donate money to No More Landmines, a cause that Paul proudly supports.

I’m a big fan of RAM, some of you might remember I put Ram On onto the +KN Mixtape Sunshine Sometime, it’s an absolutely amazing song. Since I’m kinda nutty, I decided to create my own cover to this sweet comp’, because… well… the original artwork needed some love.
