Mar & Szjerdene – “Avril 14th” | Music Video

Dutch singer Mar, who has been releasing some phenomenal covers of late (his cover of Lil’ Wayne’s “Single” is particularly outstanding), has just dropped off the latest in his Variation series, a stunning take on Aphex Twin‘s “Avril 14th.” Eagle-eared listeners will recognise the original as the sample from Kanye West‘s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy standout “Blame Game.” Be warned, the visuals here are as painful and heart-wrenching as they come.

Hopefully he’ll be back in the UK soon – I missed him when he was around earlier this year, but this is one guy I’d love to catch live.
