Cover Me!: Too Little Too Late

OMG you guys! I can't believe I didn't remember to put out this gem earlier. But it makes a fine addition to this lovely little recurring segment of covers. And, just like Deer Tick's cover of "Beautiful Girls", this one takes the indie to those shiny top 40 hits. This time, Grizzly Bear's Daniel Rossen puts the freaky folk threads on teeny bopper JoJo's "Too Little Too Late." While on paper, this might seem like a surefire recipe for disaster, let me assure you, it is not. This is perhaps a perfect example of just how subjectively we can be when judging what is "good/bad" in music and just how malleable the pop genre really is.

Either way, download this right now to listen to while you get ready for the night and notice how your tail feather begins to involuntarily shake as you straighten your hair/shave your back.
