Rise Above

I've spent the last few weeks obsessing about The Dirty Projectors record "Rise Above", which is their re-imagination of the 1981 Black Flag classic "Damaged". It might be all the pretty harmonizing or the Edwyn Collins'ish of singer Dave Longstreth voice but whatever it is, it's working.

Listen first to the Black Flag version and then hear the Dirty Projectors translation.
