Discovering a bunch of covers I had not heard. James Blake recorded when the party’s over and Godspeed — both beautiful but too much like their originals. Unlike this recording of Waterfalls which is uniquely Death Cab. A good cover sounds lyrically familiar with new distinct ownership.
It’s a shame Vic Chestnut isn’t around to enjoy these covers:
If I could bid on artists to record covers I’d totally throw some money behind Ben Gibbard, Jenny Lewis and Jimmy Tamborello recording Phil Collins hits.
