Rose covers Artic Monkeys for Record Store Day

Monday, April 16, 2012 – In honor of Record Store Day on April 21, Domino Records commissioned two very Arctic Monkeys covers from Caitlin Rose, the young indie artist from Nashville.

Rose recorded Alex Turner's Piledriver Waltz and Love is a Laserquest. The former first appeared in the British film "Submarine" as a bittersweet acoustic love song, and then later as a fleshed out Arctic Monkeys song from their most recent album "Suck It and See." Rose converted the song into a country rock ballad complete with slide guitar. Love is a Laserquest was done as a heartbreaking country song. Both songs will be pressed on a limited edition 7 inch for Record Store Day only.

Rose is currently in the studio recording the followup to her critically acclaimed debut, "Own Side Now."

Other times, such as on the title track and For the Rabbits, her voice comes off eerily similar another befringed-brunette: indie »»»
