Cover songs can be a dicey proposition sometimes. Too similar to the original and everyone just accuses you of unoriginality; stray too far from the arrangement people know best and people bash it for being too different. I think Rubblebucket have found a pretty interesting sweet spot with their recently released cover of Fugazi’s classic track “Waiting Room.” There are horn blasts, bubbling synths, a powerful female vocalist and a sense of fun present that the original lacked. Check it out!
