Ryan Adams Covers Galaxie 500

So many covers today! Here’s another one: Ryan Adams, playing live at Boston’s Orpheum this weekend, doing a lovely solo-piano cover of Galaxie 500’s classic “Blue Thunder,” a sort of holy text for all the dreampop and slowcore that followed it. And since Galaxie 500 were a Boston-area band, that makes this a nice little bonus for the city that happened to be hosting Adams. Listen to his version below.
