“Heavenly Arms” f. Bonnie “Prince” Billy (Lou Reed Cover) (Video)

     

    Yo La Tengo recently finished their Hanukkah sets in Hoboken, and they had a bunch of indie-rock friends open for, and cover songs with, them. Above is one of the better covers–a take of Lou Reed’s “Heavenly Arms” that features lead vocals from Bonnie “Prince” Billy. I wasn’t too familiar with the Blue Mask deep cut, but this is a pretty great cover, with plenty of group vocals and a bunch of smiles all around. There are more covers to be found at 24-Bit.
