Indie rockers Metric recently laid down a cover of Tom Waits’ “Strange Weather” for WFUV’s indie offshoot The Alternate Side. Singer Emily Haines plays to her strengths, avoiding the sneer Waits gives the track on 1988’s Big Time. Instead, she turns on the soul and delivers a haunted, sultry rendition over James Shaws’ forlorn piano. Check out the in-studio performance below (via The NJ Underground).
