You really couldn’t find a better person to cover Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Games” than Washed Out’s Ernest Greene. Like Isaak, he’s got those all-American good looks, seems like a genuinely nice guy and, let’s face it, he’s pretty pro at making dreamy bedroom music (see: Within Without). Greene’s wife, Blair, makes like a neo Hope Sandoval on the backing vocals, pinning this cover deep in ’90s nostalgia. Only question is, who’s the next Helena Christensen? Check out the rest of Washed Out’s Sirius XMU Session next Wednesday at 9PM EST.
