Let me lead off with a very clear endorsement, Jacob Thomas Jr.’s Original Sin is one of 4 albums I’ve written down as a favorite of 2014 so far. Off of it, I will share the cover of Fleetwood Mac that features Lily Costner. It is an exceptional rendition that captures the album and removes itself from being talked about like it’s just another cover. It’s not re-imaging the song, but instead removes all the varnishes to reveal the true bitter nature of the original.
With that laid out, pour yourself a glass of whiskey on the rocks and let the ice cubes melt as you let this song repeat. It’s the only way to consume and match what’s going on. It’s there, stripped down to its essence, left to be consumed alone after you have given more time and thoughts to someone that’s not there with you or the whiskey or your thoughts.
It’s a fitting cover for an album that raw and genuine. Original Sin will be out June 17th. I highly recommend it; enjoy Go Your Own Way.Go Your Own Way by Jacob Thomas Jr.
