Listen: Belle & Sebastian Cover The Primitives’ “Crash” For ‘Late Night Tales’

    Belle & Sebastian is the latest band to contribute to the Late Night Tales series, which follows a prior installment by the group six years ago. The albums in the series are designed to show off the pivotal influences on artists from a broad range of backgrounds. The latest effort from Belle & Sebastian includes a few surprising tracks (Gold Panda, Toro Y Moi) plus a cover of the Primitives’ late ’80s indie rock hit, “Crash.” This version of the song is totally different to the original, replacing the buzzsaw pop tones of the Primitives’ version with the kind of melancholy feeling Belle & Sebastian have often returned to throughout their career. Check it out in the clip below. [via The Guardian]
