Mr. Little Jeans Covers Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs”

Written by

Arcade Fire you’ve been hearing on Morning Becomes Eclectic? Like someone drank some cough syrup on their way home from the danceclub and gave it a go? It’s Mr. Little Jeans – who is actually very much a lady – singing “The Suburbs,” the title track off their Grammy-winning album.

I love her take on this. I am one of those that believe a cover should totally reinterpret a song and take it in a new direction that expresses the artist’s unique style. The Norwegian chanteuse really gives is a fresh sound.

I actually first discovered Mr. Little Jeans, and her excellent track “Stones in the Attic,” on RCRDLBL and you can still download that track – which is notably more joyful, with handclaps and all – as well as the above track on the site.
