COVERILLE | Cheyenne Marie Mize

NEW VIDEO: To kick off the release of her new record, “Before Lately”, Cheyenne Marie Mize sent a cover of Neutral Milk Hotel’s “Oh Comely” to Mixtape Muse. It’s a pretty cool concept to ask musicians what songs inspire them, ask them to record it, and post the results. In this case, Marie Mize (via an I-phone recording) talks about how “Oh Comely” gives her goosebumps and often brings her to tears. It’s a difficult song to sing. When Neutral Milk Hotel lead singer Jeff Mangum sings it, his voice breaks often with fragility, giving it’s strange lyricism a sense of crumbling and breakdown. Listen to Marie Mize’s cover below, courtesy of Mixtape Muse. You can also read an archived Their Bated Breath review of “Before Lately” or listen to her new song, Over the Moon. Here is a link to the original version of “Oh Comely”: “Your father made fetuses with flesh licking ladies, / While you and your mother were asleep in the trailer park. / Thunderous sparks from the dark of the stadiums, / The music and medicine you needed for comforting. / So make all your fat fleshy fingers to moving, / And pluck all your silly strings, bend all your notes for me. / Soft silly music is meaningful magical, / The movements were beautiful, all in your ovaries.” – David D. Robbins Jr.
