Kris Lefcoe Covers The Stooges

I love cover songs, especially when an artist picks a song that's not one of the obvious ones. New York based Canadian filmmaker Kris Lefcoe has released a cover of The Stooges' "Dirt." Lefcoe does the near impossible feat of releasing a cover that is instantly recognizable but also reworked into her own style. Lefcoe's version includes a distorted keyboard and a much more vulnerable take than the original. The cover still has buzzing guitars and the same bass line. Lefcoe has made an homage to an iconic band while avoiding making a note for note cover.

Kris Lefcoe says of her cover of "Dirt":

Iggy’s lyrics capture a seemingly contradictory combination of raw emotion, vulnerability, and nihilism that I find relatable. The Stooges are my favorite band, and this is a song I haven’t heard anyone cover before...I think the fragility and femininity of my voice gives the lyrics a new meaning.”

You can watch the video for "Dirt" below. The song will be the B-side for Kris Lefcoe's upcoming single "Booked a Room," due out June 8. For more on Kris Lefcoe, check out the artist's website.
