Jay Reatard – Fluorescent Grey
This is a cover of my favourite Deerhunter song, which is part of an ongoing ‘covers swap’ series by Jay Reatard for the Matador label. I’m not sure about the faux-English accent here, but what he has done with the now acoustic ‘people never know’ breakdown is interesting. The flip side of the 7″ release is Deerhuner taking on Reatard’s “Oh It’s Such a Shame” from Blood Visions.
