"I Luv the Valley, OH!" by Shearwater
Originally by Xiu Xiu
Jonathan Meiburg's orchestral prog collective, Shearwater, has announced a covers collection (Fellow Travelers - Out 10.26.13) that will feature covers of songs by bands with whom they’ve shared the stage (Coldplay, St. Vincent, Clinic, Smog, to name a few).
As with all Xiu Xiu covers, Jamie Stewart manages to deconstruct the song down it’s melody and then reconstruct a whole new vibe around that. With this cover of Rihanna’s hit jam, Xiu Xiu builds sharp synth and string lines into a something of a nightmare dance beat. It’s pretty wild to hear.
