Could use an hour of this. Also like their Comfortably Numb, though it's a bit dark.

Cure for insomnia. Preferred Jessica Langes version on American Horror Story to this.
Probably the worst cover of a Bowie song I've heard.

I love it.

Their cover of comfortably numb is the song that introduced me to them. Also loved their Nirvana cover. Been enjoying listening to these.

This is a solid song!

This kind of music always strikes me as a kind of play, and I appreciate that aspect of it. On the other hand, it has zero impact on me emotionally and that means I tend to lose interest quickly. Somebody else's idea of play may not match mine. I made it about 1 minute and a half into this one.

I guess I don't consider their work as exactly covers since it drifts so far from the source. More "inspired by" or something else.
