1. Listen to Sui Zhen's Cover of "Gratitude" by the Beastie Boys (AUDIO).

    Australian singer-songwriter Sui Zhen has to date recorded largely acoustically, as demonstrated by the intimate folk-pop of last spring's debut, Two Seas. Zhen's latest, though, is a cover version of the Beastie Boys' "Gratitude" - which finds her inventively transforming the Check Your Head staple's anthemic punk-thrash riffing into a haunting, echo-y, gently drum machine-anchored piece of moodiness. Beasties fan faithful may be taken aback, but the elegiac treatment - performed with genuine affection for the original song - feels mournfully apropos post-Adam Yauch's passing. Listen below. Available later this month via Sui Zhen's Bandcamp.
