Happy Wednesday ya'll, here is a fun cover of X's "Nausea" by one of our favorites, Yacht. I love X, and I've always loved this song, but it's funny, on this version, the words are much clearer, X's version is pretty raw, and I always thought Exene was singing "Nausea, bloody red eyes girl," but on this version, Claire L.

You're watching an artist you love, who sound as great as ever, but the setting is cheesy and wrong and it just feels weird. In Portland, Oregon, where Ida No and Johnny Jewel originate and perform regularly, their shows feel like family reunions—crowded, but exciting and intimate.
