In Bloom

Really interesting cover of Nirvana’s “In Bloom” by Sturgill Simpson.

I’m not a fan of country music – at least not what Nashville churns out right now – but Sturgill’s combination of Randy Travis baritone (to my ear) and some Chris Isaak arrangement on this song are really something.

The song appears on his current album, A Sailor’s Guide to Earth, which is his major label debut.

I especially like how he changes the last line of each verse to “He don’t know what it means to love someone”.

It’s not often that an artist can transform a song by covering it and make it truly sound like there own. Sturgill Simpson’s cover of In Bloom does that and more.

Fantastic reinvention of an iconic track.

Happy Friday!
