Following on from his amazing new album (and Album of the WeekPerpetual Motion People Ezra Furman’s Midas touch continues with his brilliant cover of LCD Soundsystem’s ‘I Can Change’.

A gentle acoustic number is delicate and incredibly intrusive in it’s view of the artist. It shows Furman at his vulnerable best, exposing his sole, and even with another artist’s brushes he paints his own picture of touching veracity.

As part of an EP of covers released exclusively with Rough Trade Records following the LP release on Bella Union. It speaks highly of Furman’s ability and beyond all else sounds like a song in its own right. A beautiful piece of work.

Catch Furman wherever you can for one of the best performances you are likely to see all year at any of the below.
