Australia’s Jagwar Ma has put together a pretty impressive track record when it comes to putting their twist on other people’s music. In the past, we’ve heard them cover Frank Ocean and Solange, and provide an entertaining remix of Angel Haze’s “Echelon” Their latest cover came while stopping by Australian radio station triple j where they took on Arctic Monkeys’ recent single “Why’d you only call me when you’re high.” Watch their performance above, and learn more about the Like A Version segment that made this happen below.
Like A Version is a segment on Australian radio station triple j. Every Friday morning a musician or band comes into the studio to play one of their own songs and a cover of a song they love.
Since 2004, many artists have participated, including Dirty Projectors, Ben Folds, The Temper Trap, Alt-J, Regina Spektor, Bon Iver, The Kooks and Hilltop Hoods. You can watch past sessions here: http://tripj.net/ZMSMjL
