DeVotchKa, Sparklehorse, Album Leaf Cover The Nightmare Before Christmas
Tim Burton’s cult stop-motion film turns 15 this year, and as previously reported a motley crew of indie and goth-pop acts have recorded covers for an updated soundtrack called Nightmare Revisited. It’s fun to hear Polyphonic Spree and Album Leaf interpret Danny Elfman, even if you risk hearing Korn’s contribution, too (always with the terrible covers, those guys). Check out our faves after the jump.
DeVotchKa – “Overture”
The Polyphonic Spree – “Town Meeting Song”
Sparklehorse – “Jack’s Obsession”
RJD2 – “Christmas Eve Montage”
Rodrigo y Gabriela – “Oogie Boogie’s Song”
Datarock – “To The Rescue”
The Album Leaf – “End Title”
That RJD2 cut is perfect if you’re going as Don Draper for Halloween. Nightmare Revisited is out now on Disney.
