A Song A Week 35: The Nemesis – Library Books (Upside Down Cat cover)

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

I’ve been avoiding covers for a while but I got the new Upside Down Cat album last weekend and had to cover a song off it. It was a tough choice, but I decided Library Books was the most like something I would have written. The original is keyboard driven with female vocals, [...]
