Pale Young Gentleman

"Perhaps one of the best Britrock records of 2008, a year which has seen releases from UK giants like Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Keane and Travis, comes to us special delivery from Madison, Wisconsin and the band Pale Young Gentlemen." [PopMatters]

The M.I.A. cover was recorded for Cokemachineglow's Fantasy podcast which is also on the top of this post for download and includes other covers by Wye Oak (doing Grand Buffet), Mason Proper (doing LCD Soundsystem), Noah23 (doing Lil Wayne), Stars Like Fleas (doing Pussycat Dolls), and many others.

There's even a Rihanna cover on the podcast - not to be confused with the Rihanna cover I just posted by The Bird and The Bee.

Also on top of this post: a Paul Simon song done by Deer Tick who recently announced a whole ton of tour dates. Check it out.
