If there’s one thing we like about The Dillinger Escape Plan (actually, there are a lot of them), it’s that they know their way around a cover. Who else would cover Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, Massive Attack and Justin Timberlake on the same EP? The band’s diversity adds to their sound, it’s also a reason why frontman Greg Puciato’s cover of a song by the band Oupa makes sense. While most are unaware of the band, it’s a side project of Yuck’s Daniel Blumberg, and their EP came out just over a week ago. Here’s what Puciato had to say about the cover, which he released yesterday:
The song resonated with me, and I dig the album it came from and wanted to record it for fun. Then I figured why not share it and give the album and original artist some exposure, while letting you guys hear me on a non-DEP(or heavy at all) track. So here you go. Recorded in the middle of the night last night and most of the day today. Check the original version out and give the album a listen here if you want. http://boiledegg.bandcamp.com/album/forget
It’s a nice, simple song, and it’s a testament to the digital age that Puciato was able to record and release the song so quickly, while it’s fresh in his mind and he still has the most amount of passion for it. He’s already said that the song isn’t heavy, and Puciato is like the Deftones’ Chino Moreno in that his voice is versatile enough to croon and scream and not alienate anyone.
