Watch Jagwar Ma Cover Arctic Monkeys’ “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?”
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.
Jagwar Ma’s album Howlin’ is out now on Mom + Pop.
