Normally, when I think “acoustic version” the first thing I think of is not “cello, violin, piano version”. I normally think “dirty guy in a bar playing a bad Bob Dylan cover”.
But this charming version of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Little Shadow is a special acoustic track. It’s quaint, dignified, polite – Victorian teatime with a blend of Ra Ra Riot under leafy green tree boughs. I can totally imagine my aunts planning my wedding to a pre-arranged Lord while Karen O sings (in a corset, of course..et)
Little Shadow (Acoustic) was released on the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s It’s Blitz Deluxe Edition, which also features pared-down versions of Hysteric, Soft Shock and Skeletons.
