By now you should all know I’m a sucker for cover songs. I can’t get enough of them!!! Unfortunately they’re mostly crap and you end up having to weed through dozens of generic ripoffs to find one amazing cover…but every once in awhile you find something rare…a cover that can stand shoulder to shoulder with the source material.
Gregorio Franco’s take on John Carpenter’s legendary Escape from New York is so good it has me thinking only one thing…how good would other Carpenter themes sound under the mastery of his dark synthwave?!? This is seriously inspired stuff from one of the best artists on the scene. What are you waiting on? Go buy this now! Now if you’ll excuse me, I feel like I need to go watch the movie.
