Uncovering the Cover

Ben Lee's translation of Modest Mouse's "Float On"

It's a hobby of mine "uncovering covers". I'm not from the camp of "why bother with a cover when you can listen to the original". I love talented interpretations of music. First, it's so telling of an artist which song they choose to take on. Second, if it's a good song, why not replay it. This is a cool one considering the heaviness of the Modest Mouse creation. But I enjoy Ben Lee and his mellowed out version here. It's not a matter of which one is better. It's just different.
