Caitlin Rose covering The National? How could we not resist such a combination? So here it is. Caitlin’s version of Pink Rabbits inevitably gives the Trouble Will Find Me track a country make over (we’d be somewhat surprised if Caitlin had decided the tune needed an electro-swing treatment ) and the lyrics “you didn't see me I was falling apart, I was a white girl in a crowd of white girls in the park,” make a lot more sense when sung by a female vocalist than when Matt Berninger rolls out the words. Of course Berninger’s voice has a habit of making everything sound pretty melancholy, whereas here Rose gives the song a lighter lilt, so consider this more a daytime version than one for the dark.
