Kudos to Bleeding Rainbow for going deep: Given the whole host of Smashing Pumpkins songs at their disposal, they chose to cover the song the band contributed to the 1993 No Alternative compilation. Their take on it (for the Non-Violent Femmes Record Store Day compilation) is relatively straightfoward. They take a quiet song and make it quieter, replacing the taut electric guitar with acoustic but keeping the song’s sleepy, shivery melody fully intact.
