Stephen Brodsky and Marissa Nadler Release New Covers of Extreme and Phil Collins
If you spent any time with Droneflower, this year’s release from Stephen Brodsky (Cave In, Mutoid Man, Old Man Gloom, etc.) and Marissa Nadler — and guys, if you didn’t spend any time with Droneflower, what are you doing with your lives? — then you already know about the duo’s talent for covers, ’cause you’ve heard their haunting version of “Estranged” by Guns N’ Roses. That “Keep the original song semi-recognizable but make it your own” thing we’re always going on and on about here at MS? Yeah well these two get it.
This being the case, you’ll wanna drop whatever it is you’re doing and check out the the duo’s pair newly-released covers. First up: “More Than Words,” Extreme’s hit ballad and the prettiest-sounding song ever written about trying to get your partner to perform oral sex more often. Next up: “In the Air Tonight,” the 1980s Phil Collins classic and Miami Vice theme song. They’re both gorgeous, natch. Also I’m not sure I’ve ever really paid attention to the lyrics to “In the Air Tonight” and holy shit that’s some intense stuff right there.
