This will give you the feels on a Monday morning. Philly rockers The Districts, apropos of nothing, released a moving cover of “Lover Lover Lover” by Leonard Cohen, from his 1974 album New Skin for the Old Ceremony.
In its original form, the song is a swinging and cinematic bit of European folk-pop vaguely reminiscent of Serge Gainsbourg. The Districts, of course, District-i-fied it with a dynamic rise and fall from an aching open to an explosive fireworks finale of loud guitars and powerful rhythms.
Listen to their cover below, compare it against the original and catch The Districts on tour opening for Dr. Dog this March. Dates below.
