  1. Still haven’t figured out how these mediocre webcam covers always seem to make it up here…

      I like the voice. Probably other people do, also. That could be it. It’s certainly more of a wonderful thing than another thread about the most recent mass murder, or drones, or the WBC or the RIAA…

    Beautiful voice and guitar work.  Thanks for posting this, David.

    Holy reverb!

    Gorgeous. Thanks David.

    Sweet Jeebus what a voice!  Thank you for this.

  6. There’s a second guitarist off-camera, right? It doesn’t look like she could be doing both the strumming and picking melody.

    One of my favorite MBV songs….she does it well. Kudos

    Nope. You know what was awesome? MBV playing MBV songs.

       They are pretty much on the top of the list of bands that should never be covered.

      •  Actually, I clicked over to the comments to say how well I thought this cover worked. The fact that you can strip away all the complex layering and distortion in the original and still have a wonderful song is a credit to MBV as songwriters.

        But crap this makes me feel old. I just realized this song is twenty years old.

       inorite?  where’s all the vacuum cleaners?

    Most excellent.  What would be cool is for a song / rendition like this to appear on The Voice or The X-Factor – which would wake my out of my slumber since my wife/kids are always watching these shows.

    Breathy, with glottal fry.

    Well for starters, she’s got impeccable taste.
    And yes, she pulls it off.
