O hey, blog, sorry I’ve been crazy-busy lately. This was in my YouTube recs today and though I was uncertain at first, it won me over in the first chorus.

I mean, you take my favorite Smashing Pumpkins song and throw in a couple of my new harmonic idols, and yeah, I’ll listen to this seven times today. As I learn more “sacreligious” covers myself, I realize the importance of making it your own, especially when you’re stripping something down the acoustic. The Civil Wars do that wonderfully, layering their trademark sound over the basic melody of what is a chilling, chilling song.

I didn’t even miss the gong. Well, maybe a little.
