Ernest Greene, on the heels of releasing a very solid LP under his Washed Out moniker, stopped by Sirius XMU and performed this spaced out cover of Chris Isaak's ballad to end all ballads, "Wicked Game".
Joined by his wife, Blair (what a talented couple!), Greene charms us with his considerate and restrained bedroom dreampop as well as he ever has, but there's something about the familiarity of the song that makes it feel even more meditative and blissful than your run-of-the-mill Washed Out tune. Download the cover below. Washed Out'sWithin and Without is out now.
Washed Out - "Wicked Game" (MP3)
I've just got to point out that 2011 has been incredibly generous with covers. We're quite fond of them, so we try to feature them as often as we can. Check out all of our cover posts here to hear artists like Bon Iver, Adele and Mumford & Sons cover the likes of Bjork, Lady Gaga and The National.
