Good Cover Version: Weaves Does the Beatles

Pulp gave the world the song "Bad Cover Version." But seeing as I'm a sonic optimist, I'm of the belief that there's more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

How do you take one of the most recognizable songs in the entirety of pop music history and make it your own? Just ask Weaves. They've taken on "Help!" as done by the Fab Four and have spun the classic early Beatles paragon and turned it into an irreverent, bleepy, smoky soul-lounge-funk-rainy Sunday treat.
