Yeasayer – “Crazy” (Seal Cover)

Anyone who knows “Kiss From A Rose” knows Seal’s place in 90s music canon. Brooklyn band Yeasayer stopped by an Australian radio station a couple days ago to premiere a cover of his 1990 hit “Crazy”, and damn it’s good. The trade-off of earthy tamborine and carefree guitar for the original’s outdated jazz-synth beats legitimizes […]
