Because There Aren't Enough Nirvana Covers: Porcelain Raft Reworks "Come As You Are"
It's been a strange summer for Kurt Cobain. First, his baby girl, Frances Bean, bursts out of out of underage-dom and into the awaiting arms of millions of middle aged creepers. Then, Spin releases Newermind, their multi-artist Nirvana tribute album (um, A for effort, guys?...). Finally, governor of Utah and candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination Jon Huntsman rips a killer "Come as You Are" joke at the recent Republican Tea Party debate. Basically, if Kurt hadn't already decided whether to be or not to be, he'd just be racking up arguments for the negative.
But not be be outdone by, uh, Joseph Gordon Levitt, London-based psychedelic lo-fiers Porcelain Raft take "Come as You Are", slow it to a crawl, and crank up the reverb to 11. Snag the track for free below and catch Porcelain Raft on tour with Yuck this fall!
