’90s Arizona alt-rock band Gin Blossoms released their last album, Mixed Reality, last year, following 2010’s No Chocolate Cake. They’re currently on a national tour. Last month, they added a cover of Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees” to their setlist. And today, they performed it in-studio for a SiriusXM session. The original song comes from Radiohead’s 1995 album The Bends.
This morning, Stereogum broke our “never, ever post month-old videos from German reality TV” rule when we posted a video of two little girls singing an insanely good rendition of Radiohead’s “Creep.” Gin Blossoms’ “Fake Plastic Trees” acoustic cover is also insanely good. Listen to it below.
