david coverversion: the raveonettes vs. buddy holly vs. rogue wave

if i remember correctly, danish duo the raveonettes hit the scene around the same time as other duos like the white stripes, the black keys, douche from above 1979, the fiery furnaces, the dresden dolls, and so forth. i only remember that because cockgrabbing rags like spin and rolling stone went gaga over this two person band coincidence. anyways, releasing an excellent ep before two stellar proper albums, the raveonettes wear their influences on their sleeve--as shown by their choices of covers. here they give us a great rendition of the buddy holly classic 'everyday'. i guess that is a little redundant as all of buddy holly's tunes are classics. for the same video game that the walkmen covered the drifters 'there goes my baby' for, oakland indie outfit rogue wave gives us an their take of the same song ('everyday'), and it's equally as good. different hipsters (lame) with different takes on a simple song (noice).

buddy holly - everyday
the raveonettes - everyday
rogue wave - everyday
