Optimus Primavera Sound 2012: day 2

Oh, festivals on weekdays. Such a pleasure for people who can’t take days off work. Thank god not everyone on the team has such problems. Still not over the fact I haven’t seen The War on Drugs, for example. Please read on…


Just discovered this gem on my inbox. Look, a Wilco cover song that doesn’t suck! Kudos to The Hudson Branch, responsible for this soul-infused version of “Sky Blue Sky” from the album with the same name. This is how you do covers, kids:

We love Wilco and this track is one of their best. Instead of doing a mediocre remake of it – we decided to have some fun and draw on our love of Motown while covering it.
