Nirvana's "Sliver" And "Dive" Get A Reggae Makeover

Above, the reggae singer Little Roy takes on the A and B sides of Nirvana's

"Sliver"/"Dive"

single, which is almost 21 years old as of this writing. Both covers are surprisingly enjoyable to listen to—raise your hand if your first reaction when hearing the phrase "reggae Nirvana cover" is the mental image of being trapped in a lousy college-town bar on open-mic night—but "Dive" is particularly revelatory, with Roy's wail matching Kurt Cobain's strangled wail quite effectively. The songs are available digitally now, and

Ark Recordings

is putting them out on a 7-inch later this month. [Hat tip to
