Afghan Whigs - Lovecrimes

Cincinnati indie-soul gods Afghan Whigs have been covering Frank Ocean’s “Lovecrimes” since the launch of their triumphant reunion tour, but considering the week Ocean just had, it’s not exactly bad timing for the Whigs to deliver a studio version. Greg Dulli and Co. slow down Ocean’s original (from Nostalgia, Ultra), giving it harder edges, greater desperation and (surprise!) a heart of darkness. It’s fantastic. Listen below.

  1. Fabulous! I hope they make a new record.

  2. No disrespect to my man Frank Ocean, but this is so much iller than the original.

  3. No doubt about what’s a great cover. Dulli is “THE MAN”

  4. Goddamn this is soulful. How about a b-side, guys? Live performance? And then, yes, please, a new full-length. Bravo, Gentlemen.
