Low’s Mimi Parker-sung cover of Toto’s 1982 hit “Africa” for A.V. Undercover is more successful than what Titus Andronicus — NJ bless ’em — did with They Might Be Giants’ “Birdhouse In You Soul” for the same series:
Someone in the AV Club comments said this was boring and kind of dead because the majority of the band didn’t seem to want to cover it. It’s weird that I’m saying this, because Low is great, but maybe they should’ve found something they agreed on and saved this for someone who’d have more fun with this.
I’ll put that good faith in whoever covers Chumbawamba, bless them (absolutely zero irony meant in that statement because “Tubthumping” is awesome). Prepared to be bored (again) by the millionth cover ever done of “Cars”.
Of course it’s more successful. Low is a good band while Titus Andronicus is shit.
Nah man, Titus Andronicus is great. They just didn’t that great with that particular cover.
