While The Pastels almost manage to improve Daniel Johnston's song, Tullycraft give The Judy's gem a fun try and The Smittens sing The Angels' classic with their already legendary enthusiasm, I almost wish every band would only do covers for a little while. There's so much great new new music coming out lately that I hardly have time to catch up anymore. If everyone would only play new old songs for a couple of months I might feel less like I'm missing half of what I want to hear.
Who could have possibly imagined a couple of years back that I would be asking for less great new indiepop? It's a wonderful world, really.
