Michael Jackson‘s death almost two years ago has led to a resurgence of interest in his music, and, not coincidentally, a glut of covers. Unfortunately, not everyone can pull off a tribute to The King of Pop. Boston’s Bad Rabbits, though, take “Human Nature” from the Thriller album and turn it from soft rock into a spaced-out funk tune. The ’80s synths are replaced with crisp, swirling keys, the reverb is gone, and lead singer Dua Boakye showcases a great falsetto.
Levi’s debuted an exciting new series a week back that features beloved indie artists covering songs that inspired them. They will release two songs a week from now through July 1st, with selections from The Dirty Projectors (Bob Dylan’s “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine) and the Shins (Squeeze’s “Goodbye Girl”).
