Jessica Lea Mayfield: “(David Bowie I Love You) Since I Was Six”

March 20, 2012

This might be the first cover of a Brian Jonestown Massacre tune I’ve heard — and of a personal favorite no less — but Jessica Lea Mayfield delivers. With help from producer Dan Auerbach (a collaborative hero of late), she drops the usual twang inflection from her voice and settles into the shadows of the reverent groove. It’d be tough to beat the original, but tying this take for the film Apart to the slow dance scene above really resonates in the moment.
