Beach Fossils Cover “Allison” by Slowdive

The title of this short post pretty much says it all — except that the cover is gorgeous. If you’re looking for something that mixes up Slowdive’s original cut, this is not your cover. Beach Fossils play things pretty straight here, performing “Alison” quite faithfully. There’s a little less flange throughout, and, certainly, Rachel Goswell’s gorgeous harmonizing is absent. Nevertheless, this cover is just as comforting as a freshly laundered blanket. Go ahead. Curl up in it.
