Under the Covers

I've been listening to a lot of covers lately, so I thought I'd post some good ones here. Click to play/download.

Time to Pretend (MGMT cover) by Gareth Pearson- This cover could not be more different from the original. Rather than a trippy synth-heavy disco, Pearson unravels a flowing acoustic strain bearing no resemblance to MGMT's jam save for the melody.

Kodachrome (Paul Simon cover) by Conor Oberst- It always surprises me to hear Conor Oberst sing a happy song, but he pulls it off wonderfully with this Paul Simon classic.

Changes (David Bowie cover) by Seu Jorge- "The Life Aquatic" is one of my favorite movies, and I LOVE its soundtrack, mostly because of all the Seu Jorge Bowie covers.

When You Were Young (Killers cover) by the Noisettes- This cover sticks pretty closely to the original, save for some adapted lyrics in the bridge, but I like the lead singer's vocals a lot. I've never listened to the Noisettes except for a single every now and then, but this makes me want to get into them.
