This may be the B-side of the single, but anytime I can bring you a Nirvana cover instead of a Keith Urban cover, I'm going to do that. TORRES has just released a new 7" that includes a cover of "Making Memories of Us" (written by Rodney Crowell) and a B-side of Nirvana's "All Apologies." As far as Nirvana songs go, "All Apologies" is perfect for TORRES. It's a solo song with just Mackenzie Scott singing and playing guitar. The guitar is as wonderfully noisy as a Nirvana cover should be, ramping up the fuzz quite a bit from the original. And Scott is giving us the best 90's slacker rock vocals you've heard in the past twenty five years. This couldn't possibly be a better cover song.
You can listen to TORRES take on "All Apologies" below. The "Making Memories of Us" 7" is out now via Merge records and can be purchased over at Bandcamp. (The A-side is pretty great, too.) For more on TORRES, check out the artist's website.
