Has Got You Covered is the third EP by Oakland, California chiptune duo Cartoon Violence. Interesting collection of video game noises, electric guitar riffs, special effects sounds, dramatic vocals and a peculiar assortment of popular music covers from then and now. Nerd rock for you and me.

Something else from the press release:
Over the years, Cartoon Violence have covered songs by other artists in their live show. Now they have collected their Casios and Gameboys and brought them into the studio for a 5 song EP of covers you are bound to enjoy.

A mad musical scientist and a sonic death machine met and formed a union destined to destroy bad music throughout the multiverse. Cartoon Violence is beyond genre or classification. They are music for the self-aware ironic subroutine of the pop culture singularity.

RIYL: Bit Shifter, Una Niña Malvada, YMCK, Magiobus and Insecure Men.

Recommended Tracks: 1, 2, 4, 5

1. (3:31) **Life On Mars? – Medium tempo. Casio and Gameboy sounds forever. Entertaining. Cover of David Bowie.
2. (2:38) What Can I Do (For You)? – Medium tempo. From a cartoon called Steven Universe. Very Meat Loaf.
3. (3:02) **Ana Ng – Medium tempo. More Casio and Gameboy sounds for everyone. I like the lo-fi meets Broadway take. Cover of They Might Be Giants.
4. (3:47) *Dead Man's Party – Medium-up tempo. Lo-fi meets Broadway part II. Trippy. Cover of Oingo Boingo.
5. (3:26) ***Just Can't Get Enough – Medium tempo. Lo-fi meets folk pop. Cats and dogs forever. Cover of Depeche Mode.
