ICEAGE JACKIE TO THE COMRADS

Names we bet you never expected to see in the same headline on this blog: "Iceage" and "Sinead O'Connor" - but that's what's going down on an upcoming covers 7" from the Danish quartet, who are serving up their takes on her song "Jackie" and the lesser-known but also surprising Bahamutsi Drama Group's "To the Comrades" (you can hear the original about 4:40 into this mix). They're both fantastic covers, but considering we always love when Iceage get angry and contemplative (see: You're Nothing's "Burning Hand") we're partial to their reinvention of "Jackie" - Sinead's lyrics about her missing seafaring lover get even more excruciating in Elias Ronnenfelt's voice over scorched-earth punk instrumentals. Check it out - you can pick up a physical copy November 19.
