“Why” F. Maya Jane Coles (Carly Simon Cover)

    UK duo Alpines hooked up with London DJ Maya Jane Coles to cover Carly Simon’s 1982 track, “Why.” The new version is so full of dubby, downbeaten soul and minimalist groove that you won’t realizing you’re moving to it. Catherine Pockson’s singing is ghostly and alluring, not unlike Simon’s own. But, the Alpines cover has the advantage of equally cool music. The repeated question, “Why does your love hurt so much,” gains desperation when not on top of the song’s original funk. Listen to it below.
