So there I was scanning Bandcamp for a song or a band to feature for Take ‘Er Easy Thursday, when what did I see? A new album from Murder by Death. But not just any album. The band did a Kickstarter project in which those who pledged a certain amount got to request a song that Murder by Death should cover. Well, loyal reader, one of those that pledged the proper amount must be a Dudeist. Yes, that’s right. One of the cover songs on this album is “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Is In).”
And to be honest, this is exactly what a cover should be. It is pretty true to the original while at the same time, the band puts its own stamp on it. I’m willing to bet that even though this is slightly different than the original, you’ll still have visions of The Dude swimming through the air and floating between the legs of women wearing bowling-pin headdresses. Until next time, you take ‘er easy. I know that you will.
