What I’m Listening to: Franz Ferdinand Covers Grimes’ Oblivion

I know I just posted about Franz Ferdinand‘s new album, but they popped up on my radar this morning for performing this Grimes cover of Oblivion while doing press and I like it so much I had to share.

I didn’t realize how little detail I paid to the lyrics of the original until I heard this acoustic version.  The original, which I love, is still awesome but far from acoustic so it’s neat to see this version preformed, and performed well.

Here is the cover:

…and here is the original for those who haven’t heard it.
