Holly Miranda – ‘Mary Won’t You Call My Name’ (Morphine Cover)

[Stereogum]

By Tom Breihan

Earlier this year, the singer-songwriter Holly Miranda released Party Trick, an EP of covers. We’ve posted her versions of songs by Drake and Bon Iver, but the cover choice that impressed me most was “In Spite Of Me,” the best song that the much-missed Boston trio Morphine ever recorded. And now Miranda has shared another cover of a song from Morphine’s classic 1993 album Cure For Pain. This one is a raucous live version of the driving “Mary Won’t You Call My Name,” and you can hear it below.
