Tune Of The Week

Here it is folks, the first of many.

        Polyphonic Spree - Lithium           [free download]

It's refreshing for someone to breath some air into a tune you've played stale, and having been a Nirvana fan pretty much since I got into music, 'Lithium' needed a pretty decent cover to be rescued for me. Polyphonic Spree's lush symphonic soundscape fits surprisingly snugly over Cobain's angular changes, although this version is surely proof that there isn't an artist in the world who could rub the Nirvana stamp off 'Lithium'. But then, maybe playing someone's song better than them is a little harsh anyway.
