Even the most imaginative of us would have difficulty finding much in common between garage-punk geniuses The Stooges and Swedish popsters Ace of Base. They are likely all warm-blooded and oxygen-dependent…anything else? Maybe Missouri-based electro-rockers We Are Like the Spider see something the rest of us don’t, as they recently covered The Stooges “I Wanna Be Your Dog” and Ace of Base’s “All That She Wants”.

On “Dog” they draw as much from the Sonic Youth version as they do from the original, and end with a See n’ Say-style cacophony of animal sounds. The Ace of Base tune is the real gem. The band takes a song that stalked many a grunge aficionado in 1993 and not only makes it listenable, but actually makes it enjoyable. Well done.
