The Frank & Walters

The Frank & Walters’ cover of “Cemetery Gates” by The Smiths is interesting:

  • The vocal phrasing is more restrained and has a different timing than the original.

Girl in a Coma: “Smart”

“Smart” by Girl in a Coma is one of the best new songs I’ve heard in a really long time.

“Smart” is the single from the band’s latest album, and it sounds like a long-lost song by The Smiths, if The Smiths were an all-girl band.

Every single component of the song works so perfectly together — the vocals, shimmering guitar chords, drum beat that is actually quite varied and complex upon close listening, and bass line that holds it all together.

WOW.
