Julian Casablancas "Rave On" (Buddy Holly cover)
We've already heard the Black Keys and Modest Mouse do their Buddy Holly covers for the upcoming Rave On Buddy Holly tribute, but now we have an offering from arguably the suavest guy on there, with Julian Casablancas' take on "Rave On."

Here, the rock song is transformed into a synth-heavy lo-fi jam, falling somewhere between the sounds of Casablancas' day job in the Strokes and Canadian synth indie rockers Handsome Furs. A weird listen, no doubt, but definitely worth two minutes of your time.

Rave On will be available on June 28 via Fantasy Records/Concord Music Group.
