Mysterious Brooklyn-based duo, The Blancos, have contributed a cover of Nirvana’s “Something In The Way” to the recent Pigeons and Planes tribute compilation, Teenage Angst Has Paid Off Well. Armed with little more than a guitar, a laptop, and unmistakable vocals, this rendition of the Nirvana classic may actually manage to ache and linger well beyond the original.
