This week's cover and original is a familiar pairing - José González and an electronica type band, this time, Massive Attack, and their song, Teardrop. This song entered into my consiousness via the show House MD, where it's used as the theme song. A year ago, before In Our Nature was even announced, González had been touring with the song, and it was fantastic to see it end up on his record.
Teardrop is a fantastic song - it's got a great rhythm here, and González had really made the song Heartbeats by The Knife, his own, he really keeps with the same sound and feel of the original Teardrop here in this cover version.
