Marika Hackman - Lithium (Nirvana cover)
As you probably expect, Hackman doesn’t try to copy the original, but rather uses it as a jumping off point.
I found myself waiting for the first time the chorus rolled around, because that felt like it was going to be a sort of test; how she handled it wasn’t exactly surprising, but she did manage to surprise me with how perfect it was when it did come around, if that makes sense. Either way, give it a try.
As a little cover Friday bonus, Hackman also recorded a wonderful cover of These Days, which is available on the SoundCloud.
