The Dodos – “Never Meant” (American Football Cover)
Today, Polyvinyl Records announced that they were putting out a compilation celebrating their 20th anniversary called Polyvinyl Plays Polyvinyl, which, true to its name, features artists on their roster both past and present covering each other. They also shared a ton of tracks from it already, including Xiu Xiu doing Deerhoof’s “Hi,” Beach Slang’s take on Japandroids’ “Younger Us,” and Mike Kinsella’s Owen project covering Rainer Maria’s “Ears Ring.” The last track from the compilation that we’re getting today is a cover of Kinsella’s more well-known project American Football courtesy of San Francisco folk band the Dodos. Hear their rendition of “Never Meant” via CoS below.
Polyvinyl Plays Polyvinyl is out 11/25. Pre-orders available here.
