    black midi have today released their Calacovers EP, which features their take on songs by Taylor Swift, King Crimson, and Captain Beefheart. The tracks were previously available on bonus flexi-discs for fans who pre-ordered the band’s 2021 album Cavalcade. Take a listen below.

    black midi’s rendition of King Crimson’s ’21st Century Schizoid Man’ marks the first time all three members of the group – bassist Cameron Picton, guitarist Geordie Greep, and drummer Morgan Simpson – are featured on vocals. Their cover of Captain Beefheart’s ‘Moonlight On Vermont’ also sees Simpson taking on lead vocals for the first time on a black midi release. Picton sings on their version of Swift’s ‘Love Story’; a press release notes that black midi are “longtime fans of Swift’s work.”
