Teenage Spaceship (Smog Cover)
How To Dress Well‘s cover of Smog’s “Teenage Spaceship” is what hazy, iridescent daydreams are made of. A collaboration between HTDW mastermind Tom Krell and tourmate Aaron Read, the lo-fi recording was created over the course of a few months using built-in laptop microphones. Krell isn’t trying to top the original, writing “The beauty of Bill Callahan’s song is unmatched — this is just an attempt to do honor to one of the greatest songs I’ve ever known.” As a testament to the beauty of isolation and solitude, How To Dress Well’s version gets the point across in a modern way that still resonates with the soul.
