Covers Wednesday | Bright Eyes, Animal Collective, & Björk

Polly

Since my other two weekly features have gone over so well, I thought I should introduce another new feature: that would Covers Wednesday. As you can guess,  Covers Wednesday consists of covers. I don’t think there’ll be any particular style though; some weeks I’ll focus one artist’s covers, other weeks covers of one artist. Still others, like today, I’ll just throw together a few semi-random covers that piqued my interest. Today, I’ve got some covers by Animal Collective, Björk, and Bright Eyes, of Nirvana, Nancy Sinatra, and Feist. The Animal Collective cover of Nirvana’s ‘Polly’ is definitely the best of the bunch. It’s one of the most darkest songs from either bands catalog. I never understood the controversy over ‘Polly’ until now; with AC performing it, the subtleties Cobain wrote in take center-stage, producing the most thoroughly disturbing song I’ve heard since Scott Walker’s last album.
