[video] Heavenly States + Britt Daniel: “Berlin Wall”

Man, what a beautiful song. It makes me feel a bit guilty though. I know if Britt’s name wasn’t attached to this, there’s a 50/50 shot that I would have overlooked it. Well consider that inspiration for me to do another run through my inbox to make sure I haven’t overlooked anything this fantastic. The video’s good, but really it’d be tough to outdo this song without an insane budget.

“Berlin Wall” comes from Heavenly States’ upcoming album Oui Camera Oui, which is out now

the Spoon covers archive :: 22 covers and counting!

Just a few days ago I shared three Spoon covers and said to let me know if you guys had any more. Well, I didn’t quite expect you to point me to almost a dozen other covers, but I’m sure glad you did. Some of you left links to MP3s and someone left a link to this helpful post. So thanks very much for that.

Then I did a little more digging of my own and unearthed a few more covers, including one of Britt Daniel doing Wolf Parade’s “Modern World.” I know, right? Mind. Blown. So for the second time, I give you an as-complete-as-I-can-get-it collection of all of the covers one of my favorite bands has done — this time around, it’s Spoon. I’ll be adding more as I find them — with your help, hopefully — but for now, just enjoy!
