Jeff the Brotherhood - Come In Alone

This is another song I came to through from KEXP. The first time I heard it, I didn't even realize that it was a cover of the My Bloody Valentine song! It's from Jeff the Brotherhood's Dig the Classics EP released in the fall of 2014. (Cujo and Mad Dog 20/20 are two other great tracks from that EP.)

I love the contrast of this cover and the original. Covers can often sound like an imitation of the original. My favorite covers are versions that interpret the original. Jeff the Brotherhood is very much a guitar, bass and drums rock band - the complete opposite of My Bloody Valentine's sound. This version hits a sweet spot for me.

Original included for comparison.
