"Apistat Commander", I implore you, no I demand of you more bells, please! This cover is PERFECTION. Sunset Rubdown, who is easily my biggest obsession, takes this somber track and transforms it into a harmonious symphony that lingers in your ear long after you listen. It is the oddest thing, but to hear that mallet dance gracefully up and down the glockenspiel makes my heart putter and leaves me wanting and anticipating more.
Nevertheless I am beyond satisfied with this busily buoyant rendition of Xiu Xiu’s "Apistat Commander" covered by Sunset Rubdown.
Editor's Note: Need more Xiu Xiu in you life? How's about you take a gander at the wonderful Xiu Xiu-Shearwater collab Blue Water White Death? My adoration for Shearwater frontman Jonathan Meiburg makes me baised but our own Matt Roney (whose heterosexuality prevents him from swooning over Meiburg as I do) has nothing but the best of things to say!
