Jacob Collier covers “In My Room”

I love me a good cover, and I found this particular cover (not to mention the many other covers found on this album) to be some of the more interesting, jazzy, clever, and gaudy covers I’ve heard in recent memory.

I chose “In my room” not only cause, well, I particularly like it, but because it somehow manages to stay faithful to the original in vibe and form while truly being its own song. Pay particular attention to the rhythms that arent *quite* right and keep you constantly on your toes while you revel in the familiarity of the Beach Boys Classic.
