Cold Specks - "Reeling the Liars In" (Swans cover)
By Gregory AdamsCold Specks' Al Spx has been described as a "doom soul" singer, so the thought of the Etobicoke, ON native delivering a cover of eerie post-punk greats Swans' "Reeling the Liars In" shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

Her take on the cut, which appears on her Record Store Day EP Dancing Coins, doesn't stray too much from the original, but Spx injects a little extra gospel warmth to the lyrics about piling bodies on the fire.

You can stream the cover down below courtesy of The Quietus.

As previously reported, Cold Specks debut LP I Predict a Graceful Expulsion comes out May 22 through Arts & Crafts.
