James Blake, “Limit To Your Love”

I like this in the same way that I like Kendal Johansson’s “Blue Moon,” in that I’m used to hearing the song a certain way and find the cover version initially jarring, and then come to embrace it for its very jarringness. I also like how Feist songs are becoming contemporary standards.

Bon Iver, “The Park”

A while back I downloaded Bon Iver’s incredibly lovely cover of Feist’s “The Park,” made when he was visiting an Australian radio station, and for months I listened to it endlessly. I only recently found the video of the performance, which is … okay. It doesn’t exactly add anything to see the prosaic studio trappings or the deejays solemnly looking on, or to listen to their prefatory chucklings. Best to go here and download the song straight up (it’s free).
