Afghan Whigs Cover Frank Ocean’s “Lovecrimes”

George Lang Published: July 16, 2012

Greg Dulli and the reunited Afghan Whigs have been covering this standout from the 2011 mixtape “Nostalgia, Ultra” practically since it came out, but they just released their studio version of it, and in classic Afghan Whigs style, Dulli makes everything about the song much creepier. This is to be expected, given the treatment the Afghan Whigs gave TLC’s “Creep” back in the day.

My view is that the Afghan Whigs are doing this 1990s reunion thing better than almost anyone else. They stayed away long enough to be missed, they actually sounded better and oddly current when they returned, and Dulli is now indulging in super-current R&B — not a new thing, given the band’s excellent past covers of TLC and Barry White.
