A Cavalcade of Cover Versons

And by cavalcade, I mean two. But I hope you won't begrudge me the opportunity to use that awesome word.

Anyway, on to the covers, which are available to download for free from the respective artist's Bandcamp pages:

Moscow Times - Electric Feel

Belfast band Moscow Times cover of MGMT's 2008 single serves as a reminder that behind the the day-glo production, there is a fantastic song just waiting to escape. Stripped down to just guitar and vocals, this version is simple, yet empassioned.

David C. Clements - Video Games

It seems that Lana Del Rey's "Video Games" has been covered more times in 6 months than "Yesterday" has been in over 40 years. David C. Clement's version, recorded live for Across the Line, has more of a country feel to it.
