“Accordion” (Madvillain Cover) F. The Thing

    MF DOOM and Madlib’s “Accordion” has been covered elsewhere, and by bigger names, but none have sounded quite as sexy as Neneh Cherry & the Thing’s version, which was released today on YouTube. The first thing you might notice about the cover is that there is no actual accordion on it. But with her beat-poet delivery and Sex Mob-inspired double bass and baritone sax instrumentation, Cherry more than channels the creepy ethos of the song. Check out the video below.
