Black Strobe “Folsom Prison Blues (Johnny Cash cover)”

Johnny Cash‘ classic, “Fulsom Prison Blues” traded in its steady country guitar for synth arpeggios. Cash turned in his distinctive bass country twang for a British baritone. At least that’s the world we see in Black Strobe‘s cover of the track. Amazingly enough, it works incredibly well. The track sounds a bit more dour but at the same time it sounds like something Cash, who was working with Trent Reznor at the end of his days, could have gotten behind.
