What happens when a fantastic NYC rock band covers a legendary NYC rock band? In the case of LTrain’s cover of Blondie’s “One Way or Another” the answer is – f*cking magic!
LTrain has been rockin’ the city for quite a while now, and if you’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing them live you know they’re an amazingly good time. One can easily see how they fall into the lineage of Blondie, which makes this cover, with Crystalla Gonzalez being her own kick ass self, rather than attempting to be Debbie Harry (which is impossible), so perfect. It’s an NYC rock band paying tribute to a predecessor, and it sounds amazing.
