You're automatically going to get a million cool points for covering Can, so we can only throw Nite Jewel an extra mil for covering "The Kamera Song" from Can-before-they-were-Can band The Inner Space, which is about as obscure as it can get. She could probably coast with nerds on namecheckery alone, but luckily she's got some more integrity at play, and instead recorded a version that's every bit as good as the rest of her weird ass catalog. Stay tuned for her next project where she'll be singing backup vocals on an album of Johnny Cash covers performed by Prince.
