Covers are for lovers
My song of the summer was Grizzly Bear’s “The Knife.” (Yes, I realize I’m slow, ok??) I just played it over and over, it’s such a devastating song. Grizzly Bear’s Friend EP was recently released, which features this cover by CSS. (I can’t wait to get my hands on it.) The cover carries a similar melancholy feel, but with a dejected edge. It’s just everything a great cover is supposed to be.
And in honor of the adorable indie/electro/nu-rave/disco-punk/whatever couple of the year (get your mitts on the Songkick sticker if you can!), here’s a cover by the Klaxons as a freebie. Sadly, it’s a lot more exciting in theory than actuality. Maybe I just listened to that song way too much in high school.
