Covers! People love to cover their contemporaries these days. Sometimes a good idea, often it just leads to us trying to figure out how we’re going to add a cover of a song we still listen to regularly in the old iTunes shuffle. Mark Ronson offers up a cover of one of the many great songs on The Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs. It’s more intimate, less bombastic. Like Ronson recorded it in his bedroom in front of a mirror with nothing but an entire huge xylophone and a backing band. That’s what we have just chilling in our bedrooms too.
