The Promise Ring covered Adele’s “Rumor Has It” for the always great A.V. Club Undercover. As much as I despise Adele and her “fat girl cry baby music” as a friend once described it, this is a pretty awesome cover. With help from members of Juniper Tar, The Celebrated Workingman and Owen, they pull it together very nicely. I didn’t realize how many separate elements make up this song until seeing how all of these people each played different parts, including two drummers in what looks to be a very cramped room. I especially love how a knife is used on the triangle.
