Australia’s Triple J has a good thing going with the segment it’s dubbed Like A Version, semi-regularly coaxing artists to record an exclusive cover for broadcast. One day less than a year ago, we posted up the session in which Bon Iver covered Feist’s “The Park.” Today it’s Grizzly Bear, who’ve been on tour down under, stopping into the station armed with a take on Hot Chip’s The Warning breakout “Boy From School.” Rossen stamps the tune with his signature acoustic chord voicings ala JoJo, Ed offers his spin on Alexis Taylor’s vulnerable vocal. No beats — none necessary.
Grizzly Bear – “Boy From School” (Hot Chip Cover) (MP3)
Listen to the Grizzly guys play some originals and rap about touring, Aussie beaches, and “Sex On Fire” over at Triple J.
