who doesn’t appreciate a good cover song?
mates of state surely do. they recently announced their forthcoming cover album Crushes: The cover’s mixtape and released the first track, laura originally by girls. unlike many cover songs who attempt to emulate the original artists, the mates (married couple Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel) spice up the original with some dj scratching, and their signature indie pop sound.
with any luck the other songs on the album, including Belle and Sebastian’s sleep around the clock, The Mars Volta’s son et lumiere and even Fleetwood Mac’s second hand news, will reinvent the originals to better appreciate both versions.
