Just Friends Avalance (Nicolas Jaar Remix) – Leonard Cohen Cover Version – #coverversion Friday

On a weekend spent in San Juan Del Sur in Nicaragua, I met the amazing Shane and Emma from Ireland who introduced me to the music of Nicolas Jaar. How the hell I had missed out on this man for so long, I have no idea.

Today’s cover version is a Nicolas Jaar remix of a track by a group going by the name of Just Friends. Interestingly, the vocalist is Sasha Spielberg, daughter of Steven Spielberg.

This remix of Avalance is atmospheric, rhythmic and hauntingly beautiful that counterbalances Leonard Cohen’s deep, melancholic baritone with a light and airy but equally melancholic alto female vocalist.

Just Friends Avalanche

This is a cover version of Leonard Cohen’s 1971 acoustic guitar driven masterpiece ‘Avalanche’ taken from the album ‘Songs of Love and Hate.’ Listen to Just Friends Avalanche below.
