Sun Kil Moon "The Weeping Song" (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds cover)
Published Sep 15, 2015It's hard to remember who is or isn't on Mark Kozelek's shit-list these days, but we're thinking that Nick Cave may be in the clear. Reason being, the covers-crazy Kozelek has saluted the Bad Seed leader's classic "Weeping Song" to a lovely revamp.
A recording of a recent Sun Kil Moon performance in Scotland has surfaced, and it finds Kozelek taking a subtler approach to Cave's The Good Song number. Here, he hushes his way through lines about the weeping masses above a lightly rumbled drum line and acoustic guitar.
Like the original, it's tender and powerful. You can hear the cover down below.
