Digging Deeper: Covers I

December 3, 2015

Some covers are too good to pass up.  These five, for example, have been rotating on and off and back on my playlists since I first heard them. Inspired by a lackluster, emergency cover of Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin” I heard at a show I recently attended, this list compiles covers are fresh and engaging. Some took classics and made them their own, while others made something intriguing out of songs I might never listen to otherwise. They rise in energy as the list descends so hold on tight to your earphones.

Richard Walters – “Young Folks” [Original]


Julia Holter – “Don’t Make Me Over” [Original]
