“Tonight Tonight” (Smashing Pumpkins Cover)

    Levi’s Pioneer Session continues today with the Spin-hosted stream of Passion Pit’s cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ “Tonight Tonight” (I bet Billy Corgan is sooo stoked to be called a pioneer). Passion Pit flip the song into a sparse electro-pop ballad, which is probably the only direction you could go, since the original is so overblown and beautiful. The second chorus here is where the switch pays off. You can download the track for yourself over at Levi’s.
