A companion EP to May’s ”The Ride,” Ride This–The Covers finds the Latino barrio & roll band Los Lobos trudging predictably through Elvis Costello and Richard Thompson tunes. But on the remake of Thee Midniters’ soul breakup ballad ”It’ll Never Be Over for Me,” they hit poignant gold: If guitarist Cesar Rosas isn’t singing to his late wife, who was murdered five years ago, then he’s found a surrogate. Either way, it’ll make you want to weep.
