Everything you own should be something you either love dearly or use yearly.
Good rule for life

Thee Kvlt ov (((Ouroboros - Godzilla (Blue Oyster Cult cover)
Cover Friday, Part Two
Two nights ago I gave up trying to sleep at around four in the morning. Before five AM I had somehow browsed down a chain of music blogs that ended here, with Thee Kvlt Ov (((Ouroboros covering Blue Oyster Cult’s Godzilla (or rather ”Blue Oyster Kvlt’s Godzilla,” as TKO(((O would have it) and me giggling helplessly.
I have a hard time keeping my metal subgenres straight, but I’m pretty sure these guys are doom metal, possibly of the blackened variety. And they’re taking on Godzilla, perhaps the catchiest of the vaguely heavy novelty songs. It’s indescribable.
As one recipient of yesterday’s frantic, sleep-deprived sharing of this song observed, “when bands use a ‘v’ as a ‘u’, you know they mean business. It’s sharper. And deadlierer.”
Clem Snide - All Tomorrow’s Parties (Velvet Underground cover)
Cover Friday, Part One
It sounds pretty much exactly like what you’d expect Clem Snide covering All Tomorrow’s Parties to sound like. Which, in my opinion, is no bad thing.
Happy cover Friday, all.
Witch - Lazy Bones
A little funky psych-awesomeness straight out of 1975 Zambia. This right here is my jam, kids.
Johnny Cash - It Ain’t Me Babe
It Ain’t Me Babe performed by Johnny Cash - Just felt like some Johnny Cash this morning. This was one of three Dylan covers that appeared on the Orange Blossom Special album. There is just an incredible amount of depth and feeling that Cash brings to the tune. While there are many versions of this song performed over the years, this is my favorite.
