Indie Rock Acappella

“I don’t know why I’m contacting you about this,” Nathan writes Stereogum. “It’s my group (one man group) we do Bobby McFerrin styled covers of indie rock songs.”

Um … awesome!

Wolf Parade, Arcade Fire, Decemberists, White Stripes, Wilco, two Sufjan tunes … Nathan’s repetoire reads like a Stereogum playlist. They’re not all great, but A+ for effort and song selection.
