Metric Cover Tom Waits: “Strange Weather”

Rather than taking on the great, inimitable Tom Waits, Metric’s Emily Haines channels Marianne Faithfull’s 1987 version of this Big Time cut for WFUV. All hushed piano, chilling vocals, and a mood that — in more recent memory — conjures the vibe of Alison Mosshart’s “The Last Goodbye” for KCRW last year, the result is one of the best covers of this tune around.
