Well? Would you?

This is basically a covers EP. It doesn't count as the EP scheduled for May or anything, I'm just testing the waters.
There's a real cognitive dissonance between the tracks, I think. I mean, there ain't exactly a running musical theme. Basically, I wanted to see if I could step up the production value of my music, and this is the result, for better or worse.
Thanks!

((Edit: I changed it from MinEP to Mixtape because a mixtape is an actually real thing.))

Iceman: The Band is me, Peter, and the guitar I named Elizabeth because it just seemed right at the time. Once again, I am joined on this EP by my bass, which has since been named Margaret, or Mae for short, and my other guitar Juno, who wasn't named for that movie. My computer helped for this one too. His name is Rob. He told me his name in a pop up window once, and he whispers it during YouTube videos when he thinks I can't hear him.
Thanks to my mom for the feedback.

And just to be clear, I am not "The Iceman" or whatever. Iceman is the name of the band, not my name. Which, by the way, is Peter. Anyway, I just wanted to clear that up so we could all stay on brand around here.

Iceman: The Band Massachusetts

Hi! My name is Peter.
This band is called Iceman: The Band. It's a reference to Eugene O'Neill's 1939 play The Iceman Cometh, and it works because to think I'll ever be any good at music is a total pipe dream. Thanks!

Track Name: Title Track
Recorded around midnight on a Monday. Thanks to the person who answered the phone, you were super nice. Sorry if I over-explained about the band name. Also, the shirt question was kinda awkward at the time, I think, but it was necessary to connect back to the title of the EP. You know, bring everything around full circle.
