The Chairs – Flume (Bon Iver Cover)

By Will Oliver, February 19th 2009 — with 4 comments Covers MP3

The Chairs were one of my bands to watch for this year, and for good reason. They did an absolutely killer Neutral Milk Hotel Cover and released one really solid debut EP. They have hit me up with another cover this time of Bon Iver’s magical song “Flume”. They did a fanastic job with it, really making it their own while also keeping the eerie atmosphere that Bon Iver created. These guys keep putting out more magic. You gotta listen to this:
