i love the way that a good cover of a song can infuse it with all new life. sometimes they don't work out too well, but if they're good, they're REALLY good.
here are some of my absolute favorite covers by indie artists:
1. local natives - simon & garfunkel's "cecilia":
2. the watson twins - the cure's "just like heaven":
4. jose gonzales - joy division's "love will tear us apart":
3. bat for lashes - kings of leon's "use somebody":
4. she & him - ricky nelson's "fools rush in":
5. fanfarlo - neutral milk hotel's "aeroplane over the sea":
enjoy! what are your favorite covers?
