Recycle It!: Yep, Smells Like J*Davey Spirit

Monday, January 3, 2011

You know the feeling after the holidays. The doldrums. No more presents, holiday TV specials, acceptable pound packing pig-outs. So what better way to unwrap a little gift from J*Davey to make you feel a bit better? Everybody's favorite indie electronic soul darlings have a cure for that present you didn't receive this Christmas, their cover version of Nirvana's seminal hit "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (remember the deodorant too?) free of charge and full of that spirit the duo possesses. So does it live up? Purists of the original might frown on this as really no cover can live up to the original and Jack is no Kurt Cobain, but the dreary, plodding tone is still intact, just with a more electric soul flair that sets the mood right.While we are still waiting for a real tangible album from the duo, they always tend to apologize for the wait with a free download every once in awhile, and this one is a nice homage to add to their collection of work. So get a whiff of this.

  1. Love this cover!

    They completely changed the vibe of the song and made it their own.
