Nevermind turns 20 tomorrow and the Nirvana covers celebrations just keep coming. Two days ago, we heard the whole album covered by a lineup of Seattle all-stars. Now, music blog Beached Miami brings together another full-album set. Nevermind Miami features all Miami artists and the clear standout is Rachel Goodrich tackling “Territorial Pissings.”

A few months ago, we heard Goodrich cover Johnny Cash and the Shangri-Las. Well, the source material here is a little different, but the haunted back-country sound remains. It more than reclaims one of the Nevermind songs you don’t hear much about. The scarecrow harmonica and twangy guitar picking takes this one to a whole different place, somewhere in between Seattle and Miami. Iowa, maybe. Download her track, then stream the full set below that.

  1. 1) This has always been one of my favorite Nirvana songs.
    2) Given Cobain’s tastes, I think he’d approve of this cover.
