Hooley fkn dooley, now THIS is a goddamned cover.
Triple J‘s legendary Friday staple ‘Like a Version‘ has been enjoying a particularly strong year, with bands apparently trying to one-up each other on the shithot stakes as each Friday rolls around. But be damned if this one isn’t a clear-cut contender for a podium finish come the looming end of the year.
Perth champion Elk Road stopped by the hallowed government-funded youth broadcaster’s studios for a tilt at the well-worn-in wheel, bringing highly beloved crooner Lisa Mitchell along to help out.
But rather than be content to lay down one single track, ER decided taking two legit bangers and smashing them into one another would be the way to go.
Taking the (frankly rad) riff from Tame Impala‘s jam from last year ‘The Less I Know The Better,’ and running it into a smooth jam rendition of Flight Facilities‘ hit ‘Crave You,’ Elk Road and Mitchell managed to put up one of the LaV tunes of the year.
Wrap yr listening ears around this little beauty right now:
‘Sif you’re not absolutely psyched for the freakin’ weekend after getting all up on that bit of good biz.
Now go forth and pay homage to the Friday Lizard, good friends! The days of sleep ins are nigh.
