Cover songs are not un-cool, people. Cover songs are now a brand new way for musicians to pay homage to their favorite musicians and artists in their very own unique style. As a self-professed indie nerd, I still listen to a lot of mainstream music and am arrogant enough to make the distinction.
Our editorial content is not influenced by any commissions we receive. But over the years music has evolved and new styles are constantly morphing, building on each other, blending together, and trudging forward. With a combo of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Bad Brains gives two classic rock songs a reggae twist for what was a fan favorite of the live show. Tame Impala not only keeps the hazy quality of the original, but emphasizes it, lifting listeners into a dreamlike state. When it comes to indie rock, not too many do it as accessibly and at times lightheartedly as Death Cab and The Decemberists. The Kinks are one of the essentials of classic rock. The Black Keys are one of the essentials of modern rock. The two bands may come from different eras and have different styles, but real recognize real, right?
