Listen to The Districts’ frontman Rob Grote cover R.E.M.’s “Nightswimming”
The year was 1992 and R.E.M. had just put out their eighth studio album Automatic for the People, featuring the ballad “Nightswimming.” Near and dear to many fan’s hearts at the time (although I cannot give a first hand account having not been born yet) the song goes down as one of the best of the decade and genre.
Fast forward to 2016 and Rob Grote of The Districts gives the song his own spin with a stripped down cover. The song is a part of Amazon’s Songs of Summer playlist, which features over 30 artists such as Surfer Blood, Passenger and The Mountain Goats.
