Porter Robinson’s ‘Sad Machine’ Gets An Incredible Acoustic Cover

If you thought Porter Robinson’s (pictured) Sad Machine was an emotional work of ethereal beauty before, just wait until you listen to this stunning acoustic cover, courtesy of producer Didrick and indie/pop trio Ember Island.

I’ll be the first to admit that there was a lot to love about Porter’s original, but between the poignant female vocals and the new melancholic production, I’d argue that the cover carries even more emotional weight than the original. With a new humanistic element as well as a touching video of the song being performed in the pouring rain, you may need to reach for a Kleenex box–this one is a tearjerker.
