"Perfect Day" by Twin Shadow // Originally by Lou Reed
George Lewis Jr, aka Twin Shadow, recently add a fourth installment to his Under the CVRS series on YouTube.This time around, he chooses another melancholic ballad, but this one is a timely tribute to the late, Lou Reed. Lewis tackles the classic, “Perfect Day”, keeping it fairly tight to the original, with the exception of a mid-track addition of a slow mo, electro beat/pulse. It’s a great take and another chance to remember Reed, so it’s a definite should-watch.
"Silent All These Years" by Twin Shadow // Originally by Tori Amos (Under the CVRS 3)
George Lewis of Twin Shadow is continuing his new Youtube series, Under the CVRS, with a pretty cover of the classic Tori Amos track, “Silent All These Years”. George has already done stellar versions of 10cc's “I'm Not in Love” and Springsteen's “I'm On Fire”, so it’s not surprising that he tackle another slow burn ballad - in fact, this latest might be his best yet. That’s hard to say, though as he’s yet to misstep. The track is once again accompanied by high contrast video of the artist performing. Definitely good stuff.
