hot_chip.gifYou know that song on the Vampire Weekend album that namechecks Peter Gabriel? Well, in a development that was almost inevitable once the Brooklyn prepsters became popular, Mr WOMAD has gone and covered the song, with the help of Hot Chip. They are such kindly laddies, helping out an old man.
Mr Gabriel makes reference to the weirdness of singing his own name in the song, and as you’d expect the track has a more expansive sound than the original. But is it better? Hmmm, not in my opinion. But don’t take MY word for it – listen yourself below. What think you?
