The One A.M. Radio
give us more reasons to swoon—they are both philanthropic and possess the keen ability to avoid butchering a Smiths song. Vocalist Hrishikesh Hirway posted on his Facebook page that if anyone donated a sum of $500 to support the community-funded LA based web radio station dublab
, he would cover any song of the sponsor's choosing. The possibilities there could have been catastrophic. Some songs
should just never be covered.
Thankfully, The One A.M. Radio's rendition of "A Rush and a Push and the Land is Ours" is light, trance-y, and potentially more introspective than the original. Hirway's vocals warm the piece and are delicately complemented by swirling synths and resplendent guitar work.
