{The Mountain Goats}

"Sometimes I Still Feel the Bruise" from The Mountain Goats new Babylon Springs EP is one of my current obsessions. My better half recently informed me that the song is in fact a cover of Trembling Blue Stars, off their 2000 album Broken By Whispers. I prefer The Mountain Goats version, having heard it first, but the original version is also great. See which you prefer...

i personally love jd's version of this track. the original dripped with caustic sweetness. JD does a stellar job in bringing depth to the lyrics. IMHO
