Here’s one way to know Arctic Monkeys’ 2013 single “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” is a good song: Bands are already covering it. Queens Of The Stone Age did a version of the song during a live-in-studio session last year, and now Australian dance-rockers Jagwar Ma have taken on the song for their contribution to the Aussie radio network Triple J’s Like A Version covers series. The Jagwar Ma version is a great cover: A dubby, squiggling, groove-based take on the song with a bit of an Ace Of Base interpolation at the end. Watch them playing it below.
