Band Of Horses Cover The Replacements

Band Of Horses did “Can’t Hardly Wait” for a live, in-studio acoustic performance at Columbus, Ohio’s CD101.1FM. Singer Ben Bridwell begins by saying they’ve never tried it before, plus, Bridwell’s glossy voice is an unlikely substitute for Paul Westerberg’s gruffer shouts. But their acoustic version comes off well, with Bridwell making the end of his phrases a little bit higher, since he can. As mentioned, Band Of Horses were just announced as one of the many bands on the upcoming Twilight: Eclipse soundtrack.
