Default A.V. Undercover - Great Series of Cover Songs + Your Favorite Covers

http://www.avclub.com/video/wye-oak-...te-bush-205299

Welcome to the fifth series of A.V. Undercover, which doesn’t include the little detours we’ve taken into holiday and summer songs. We’re happy to be back, complete with a gussied-up studio and a new list of songs for bands to cover. (Once a song has been covered, it gets crossed off the list, so the later a band comes to our office, the fewer songs they’ll have to choose from. You know the drill.) The 2014 song list can be found right here. First up to bat are Undercover superstars Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner, better known as Wye Oak. It’s been an unofficial rule since we started Undercover that we wouldn’t have bands visit more than once, but because every performance has been so excellent, this is Wye Oak’s fourth Undercover appearance. (They’ve previously covered The Kinks, Danzig, and Brenda Lee.) It might even be their best, as they tackle Kate Bush’s powerhouse 1985 hit “Running Up That Hill.” It’s different, but the same—just like you and me.

Thanks for all the above. These are amazing. The musicianship is strong and pure in these ones. Stuff like this wants to make me try singing while playing bass or drumming while playing keyboards despite being terrible at all the above even when played alone.

Nice ... the Stone Roses are pretty forgotten/underrated. I love that bass line on I Wanna Be Adored.

No idea who Real Estate is, but not a bad Cranberries cover.

How have I never seen this on AV Club before? Trampled By Turtles covering Arcade Fire in season 3 is awesome!
Thanks for the link.

These videos are helpful in learning to play the songs yourself.
