“Oblivion” by Katie and Allison Crutchfield // Originally by Grimes

I’ve spent many hours of this year listening to the works of Katie Crutchfield (Waxahatchee) and as luck would have it, there seems to be no shortage of her brand of excellence. Here, collaborating with her sister, Allison Crutchfield, she takes “Oblivion” by Grimes and shifts it from an ethereal electro pop number into a jangly, garage rock jam with killer harmonies and a driving beat. The whole spectacular thing is part of Rookie Magazine’s May “Theme Song”, so be sure to check them out for future theme song goodness.
