Track of the Day: 'Big White Cloud' by Anthony Lamarca

Songs I Wish I Wrote by Anthony LaMarca A reader points to a font of new covers but singles out two: Regarding your cover series, Bandcamp is a massive resource. There are very mixed results because it’s obviously an outpost for “amateur” musicians (i.e. there are too many punk bands with Ramones covers to count), but there are many, many pros who put things up just for kicks. And they’re usually free. Example: Anthony Lamarca and his album Songs I Wish I Wrote. His cover of John Cale’s “Big White Cloud”—the original being kind of artsy treacle—is one of my most listened to songs of the past few years. The intimacy of Lamarca’s version is arresting versus the baroque Cale arrangement. Lamarca has backed or supported many big artists and bands—St. Vincent, Spoon, War On Drugs, Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500). Another: Shilpa Ray’s take on Lou Reed’s classic “Make Up.” Reed’s original camp and macabre is replaced with Ray’s brand of powerful burlesque pop.
