Nikka Costa covers The White Stripes.  Good stuff!

I really enjoy Nikka Costa (aka the high priestess of modern funk), but I didn't quite like this cover of The White Stripes' 'Denial Twist' at first. However, I've really warmed to it. I don't understand why this woman isn't more popular. I mean, that voice is so amazing - old school Tina Turner meets Janis Joplin meets Chaka Khan.

How odd. The link still works for me. The download link is located at the bottom of the page. The song is also streaming for free at her myspace.

This is cool. I love the White Stripes, and this is a solid cover.

Thanks for the link- I love it! She has such funk and I love her total abandonment when she performs!
