Marchelle Bradanini, better known as Pony Boy has become a new favorite of mine – her voice is a smoky, sultry croon that perfectly fits songs focusing on murder, despair and loneliness. This cover of Father John Misty’s “Hollywood Forever Cemetery,” is her latest single and it’s a languid, buzzing and altogether seductive cover. In an odd way, it reminds me of some of Johnny Cash’s covers of old folk tunes – where he also made songs about murder kind of sexy.
