Medicine Covers Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac doesn't sound like it would lend itself to shoegaze very well, but Los Angeles's Medicine do an amazing job with "Sentimental Lady." Medicine originally formed in 1991, and are belt known for their role in the film The Crow (and the inclusion of "Time Baby 3" on the soundtrack. The band broke up in 1995, reuniting as a duo in 2003, and are now back with an album of covers and rejoining with original singer Annette Zilinskas. 

While it might initially seem like a strange pairing, a shoegaze Fleetwood Mac cover works surprisingly well. Both Fleetwood Mac and shoegaze have a certain dreamlike feel, although they both use different methods to get there. I've personally never been much of a fan of the classic rock band, and I enjoy this purely as a shoegaze song.

You can listen to Medicine's take on "Sentimental Lady" below. Scarred for Life, the upcoming covers album from Medicine, will be out October 4 on Drawing Room Records. You can pre-order your copy here. For more on Medicine, check them out on Facebook.
