In the days since, naturally, a whole new crop of covers have emerged (*in addition to a graffiti mural in Cambridge's Central Square, shown up top as the featured image). Some bands, like Dirty Bangs and Beach Toys, went into their practice spaces and rocked out in the name of Bowie, while others, like Sarah Blacker and Feints' Amy Douglas, took a more personal approach, opening up their mourning for personal renditions of the icon's sound. The Deep North took a song they recorded years ago, and in the wake of Bowie's death, offered it up to the gods (and their social media feeds).
Below is a sampling of fresh Bowie sounds to emerge from Boston this week. If we missed anything, email us at email@example.com.

The Deep North, “Oh! You Pretty Things”
“The Deep North, like so many others, have a deep love and respect for David Bowie’s songwriting, his performances, and his artistic vision. A few years ago we recorded a cover of his song ‘Oh! You Pretty Things’, and thought we’d release it today in his memory.”
