Springsteen just released a studio version of this Suicide cover that doesn’t hold a candle to the way he used to perform it. Even with shitty sound, this is one of my favorites.
Bastille - Thinkin Bout You ft. O.N.E. (Frank Ocean cover)
Spiritualized - Sad Days Lonely Nights (Junior Kimbrough cover)

Hannah Anderson - Sophia (Laura Marling cover)
This cover is incredible. No idea who these girls are beyond what YouTube says — sisters Hannah and Sophia Anderson. Lovely.
Natalie Maines - Mother (Pink Floyd cover)
It’s Cover Friday and my Mother’s visiting. Voila!
Natalie Maines doesn’t hesitate to make audacious moves, and wresting away “Mother” — Roger Waters’ hymn to oppressive maternal authority figures from Pink Floyd — is the biggest one on her first solo album. Maines takes the “Mother” from Pink Floyd’s The Wall and deconstructs it, emotional brick by emotional brick. She rebuilds the melody and radically alters the vocal intonation of the lyric to render it resilient enough for new interpretations. “Mother” becomes a plea for understanding; to come to terms with difficult relationships through love and trust. Which, among other things, could be heard as Maines’ attempt to reach out to Dixie Chick fans, both present and former, loyal and hostile.
Daughter - Get Lucky (Daft Punk cover)
I think I missed cover Friday, so here we go! Daughter does this right.

Of Monsters and Men - Skeletons (Yeah Yeah Yeahs cover)
Well, this’ll do for an unexpectedly great cover that continues in yesterday’s theme. Looks like this recording has been making the rounds, but I heard it for the first time this morning. Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir voice in place of Karen O’s really works. (Yeah, I had to copy-paste the name…)
