Listen: Male Bonding cover Nirvana's 'Aneurysm'
You may or may not be aware of the tribute album to Nirvana's Nevermind which has was release earlier this year. It's called, rather cleverly, Newermind and features a bunch of current, relevant and good bands covering the tracks featured on the original album. This has ensured that the "Nirvana cover thing" has enjoyed a renaissance in 2011.
EMA was one of the artists who featured on the compilation, covering 'Endless Nameless' but now she's releasing a split on January 6 with Male Bonding, who also cover a Nirvana track. The one they do isn't from Nevermind, though as it's 'Aneurysm', certainly one of the more underrated tracks. Or just best, if you want to be clear. Have a little listen to what they do to it (it changes, a bit) below:
That split comes out on January 6 through Rough Trade Shops and Sub Pop (via Pitchfork).
