[Random Cool] Watch This Awesome Nirvana “Heart-Shaped Box” Cover

As I stated in this article, I’m not the biggest fan of grunge rockers Nirvana. But I do love it when someone takes a song and gives it their own spin. Well, if it’s done right, of course.

This is a time when a cover is done right. Multi-instrumentalist/singer Kawehi has posted a cover of the classic Nirvana track “Heart-Shaped Box” where she performs all the parts through a looper, creating a full bodied track that is immediately identifiable yet unique and refreshing. I wholly recommend going down below to check it out (along with her cover of Nine Inch Nails‘ “Closer”).

You can provide some last-minute support to her crowd sourcing effort here.

    I don’t like her voice :(

      No problem! To each their own!

      She sounds like Mariqueen Maandig. The Closer cover sounds like if How To Destroy Angels reinterpreted Closer, which isn’t a bad thing.

    Awesome. “Heart Shaped Box” is my favorite Nirvana song, and there’s an outside chance I like this version even better.
    And I never thought I’d get aroused by Trent Reznor’s lyrics, but that second video… Daaammn!

    DAMN…that’s wicked. Love creative people. Laugh if you want but when I saw Feist, she lays down all those previous tracks/sounds like this and I love the creativity. Thats why I have to see Imogen Heap. This from a huge Matallica and Rammstein fan :)

    • K-Dogg

      errr, ummmm, Metallica, nice spelling…D’Oh.

        I love me some Metallica and Rammstein but I would go to an Imogen Heap concert any day of the week! And if I’m in a low mood, Feist always brightens my day!
