Los Angeles musician Christian Lee Hutson has released the second volume in his cover series The Version Suicides (via ANTI-). Hear his take on the Cure’s ‘Just Like Heaven’ (with help from Shamir), Liz Phair’s ‘Why Can’t I’, and Bruce Springsteen’s ‘I’m Going Down’ below.
For Vol. 1 of the project, Hutson covered songs by Taylor Swift, ABBA, and Vanessa Carlton. He had previously shared a now-unlisted trio of Blink-182, Sum 41, and Kid Cudi covers, billed as Vol. 4 and released as part of a Bandcamp Fridays promotion to raise money for Downtown Women’s Center. His most recent full-length album, the Phoebe Bridgers-produced Beginners, came out last year.
