Song Of The Day: Colleen Green – Dammit

Consider the art of the cover song. A good cover can reveal new sides and dimensions to a song and the best covers happen when someone takes a song and really makes it their own.

On rare occasions, some get even more ambitious and cover a whole album in its entirety (The Guardian published a good piece looking at a number of artists who’ve covered entire albums a few years back). With her latest release, Colleen Green has done just that, putting her own spin on Blink 182’s Dude Ranch album by stripping down all the songs to fairly minimalist, lo-fi versions. And while this may seem like an unlikely approach, it actually works quite well, highlighting the melodies of the songs while adding a touch of melancholy.
