Built To Spill cover M.I.A's "Paper Planes"

Under The Covers, Video


mia.gifI’ve been attempting to get people into baldybeardy indie heroes Built To Spill for approximately eight years now, with not a whole lotta successa. You know what people are like.
Anyway, I’m on a bit of a Built To Spill tip at the mo because next week I’ll be going to see them perform their ‘mazin’ album Perfect From Now On at London’s KOKO.
So I was intruigedamundo to see that on stage in Italy last week they did a wee cover of M.I.A’s “Paper Planes”. Now, admittedly this particular track, while splendid, has been overexposed recently. So I promise that this is the last time I will write anything to do with it. No promises, though.
See the vidisnippet after the jump… Wonder if they’ll tackle it again in London?

    They did, indeed, tackle it in London. Tackled it, and mastered it.

  2. Stuart Waterman says:

    Yes! I was disappointed at how little the crowd seemed to be into it though, to be honest.
