Willie Nelson singing "Loving Her Was Easier (Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again)" from this Highwaymen live show is so amazingly good. I feel like Kris Kristofferson gets a little overlooked somet

That cover of Patience has been getting a lot of air play around here lately and is on point.  Just a great cover

I feel like Kris Kristofferson gets a little overlooked sometimes. He's an absolute top tier songwriter.

I love the Highway Men, fantastic super group.

My wife loves Social Distortion, and would probably leave me for Mike Ness (no she wouldn't). So I hear a lot of their music, this song in particular.  I like some of their stuff, but this one, this is a really good cover. Definitely keeps the spirit of the song but is most certainly Mike Ness/Social D's thing.

Throughout the pandemic a number of my friends (who are local musicians) have been doing their own lockdown covers to pass the time. I thought I'd share a few here.

 

This first one is Rich. He plays bass in a local atmospheric sludge metal band (Ba'al) and guitar in a comedic black metal band (Bleating Apocalypse).  Here, he has decided to do an acoustic cover of Alice in Chains' Man in the Box. Rich is known for his weird and whacky instruments and on this one, he uses an otomatone instead of the vocals: 
 

 

This next one features a couple of close friends of mine, Joe and Ellie. Joe plays bass in post-rock band Gilmore Trail and his fiancee Ellie has some solo efforts on bandcamp too.  They've done a series of stripped down covers with Ellie singing over Joe's keyboards. 

I'll share the latest video below (a reworking of a song by Cardiacs alumni Kavus Torabi), but all of their entries are pretty cool and they've done a fair few: Radiohead, Myrkur, Sting, Devin Townsend, Rush, Neil Young, Faith No More, Sarah McLachlan, Talk Talk, Cardiacs, Evergrey, Vennart, and Tears For Fears. 

 

 

If anyone else has any neat little lockdown cover, please share :)

I've been getting really into Orville Peck lately, and my love of his work has been book-ended by two cover version.

The first, that made me curious enough to check out the rest of his work, was his cover of Bronski Beat's "Smalltown Boy":

It's tremendous, putting his own spin on it without losing the intended spirit of the original. Though changing "cry boy cry" to "cowboy cry" is a bit on the nose.

 

The cover that I've been playing almost non-stop since hearing it, though, is his version of "Fancy" by Bobbie Gentry. It's a masterpiece.

And another example of "Miley Cyrus Is Better Then I Realized"

Not sure if its fair to call this a "cover", but Sean Dagher sang on a lot of the sea shantys in Assassins Creed: Black Flag.  He's been doing a 'Shanty of The Week' where he explains some of the stories behind the songs, some of the terms used in them, and of course sings them.  Its pretty great
