Deer Tick Cover The Pogues

We've been on board with virtually everything Deer Tick have put out, and, since our love of covers is quite documented here at If It's Too Loud..., we were thrilled to hear that Deer Tick's upcoming album was going to feature a handful of cover songs. The latest is a version of The Pogues's "White City." "White City" is one of those songs by The Pogues that I wasn't too familiar with, so I checked it out. It's one of their more straightforward rock songs with just the slightest hints of the Celtic sound that makes them so beloved. Deer Tick's version is mostly faithful to the original, except that it's a teensy bit faster and they substitute their Americana laced rock for The Pogues's Celtic laced rock. In other words, it's basically everything we would want it to be.

You can listen to Deer Tick's version of "White City" below. Mayonnaise, the new album from Deer Tick, will be out on February 1. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Deer Tick, be sure to check out their website.
