This cover of Death + Taxes with Jay Reatard, who passed away this week at age 29, is so eerie, like most of the art he left behind. The titles of songs like “DOA”, “An Ugly Death” and even his last nihilistic single (a surprise hit on MTV), “It Ain’t Gonna Save Me,” are enough to give us the chills, let alone this prophetic explanation of his process as a musician, from an interview with The New York Times:
