This is not an invitation for every band to cover the immensely coverable Arthur Russell, but we will say that the majority of reworks we've heard lately have been pretty solid. Next in line is Holiday Shores' cover of "Your Motion Says," which actually benefits from the fact that it originally came from a super limited cassette. Tape hiss is prevalent, it's intimate and sparse and singer Nathan Pemberton turns Russell's hushed vocal quiver into an imperfect gauzy moan. Catch the band on tour and pick up Through the Thin Cloud if they still have them and if you still have a tape player.
