Listen to Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee and Allison Crutchfield of Swearin’ cover Grimes via Rookie Mag
This is a pretty awesome track from the fun and talented Crutchfield sisters. For Rookie Mag’s “Theme Song” series, Katie (of Waxahatchee) and Allison (of Swearin‘) reinvented Grimes’ bubbling synthesizer racer “Oblivion” as a guitar-rock song, underscoring the 60s pop influences that might not have been as evident before. Check out out below (and compare it against the original after the jump). Waxahatchee plays a free show with Ted Leo and the Pharmacists on July 31, a double-bill of such awesomeness that Morgan’s Pier might just collapse and float away into the Delaware. Swearin’ has no local shows coming up, but we hope to see them again very soon.
