Who doesn’t love some Kinks? I’m a little buggered by the idea that The Onion actually takes music coverage seriously, but this is an interesting series. Basically, a list of songs are chosen and bands are invited to cover songs from that list. Once a song is covered, it’s taken off the list… for instance, Wye Oak only chose to cover “Strangers” because M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” was taken. It’ll be interesting to see what the last band is stuck with.
Wye Oak’s new EP My Neighbor / My Creator is available now at all digital outlets. The limited-edition CDEP will be in stores on June 8, but you can pre-order it now in the Merge store.
