Sharon Van Etten and Shearwater

For the A.V. Club’s A.V. Undercover video series, tourmates Shearwater and Sharon Van Etten recently got together to cover the Tom Petty/Stevie Nicks nugget “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” and I really have to give it up for Jonathan Meiburg’s Petty approximation. This isn’t the first group of people you’d recruit for classic rock choogle purposes, but they pull it off. Watch it below.

Shearwater, we hasten to add, will play at our Range Life show on Thursday night along with a whole bunch of other good bands. Come out!

  1. Somewhere, a mother is wishing her daughter had better posture. Stand up straight, Sharon dear.

  2. But seriously, This is cool. I really dig AV undercover, they’re always are good for some righteous covers (except when Cymbals Eat Guitars did Superchunk, that shit was awful).

  3. Oh, and by the way, the video isn’t working.

  4. Not for me either.

  5. The link works in Chrome, but not in Firefox for some reason.

  6. You can link straight to the video here – http://www.avclub.com/video_embed/?id=70683 for those of you who can’t get it to work. See, I did learn something working as a web developer all those years ago!
