See Green "I Can Change" (LCD Soundsystem Cover)
It was inevitable that people would cover songs from the latest LCD Soundsystem album, and as expected there has been no shortage of bands taking stabs at the tracks from the new album. Some have been good, some have been bad, but most have added little to James Murphey’s awesome songs in the grand scheme of things. See Green, a band I know absolutely nothing about, have at least made a version of the best track from This is Happening that doesn’t just make me want dig out the original. The lead singer’s sugary sweet vocals and the sped up music make “I Can Change” less of a sad hearted lament and more of a cheeky love song, which is an interesting twist. I guess my measuring stick is whether or not the song is kitschy or actually a nice compliment to the original, and I can say that this track falls into the later.
