I nicked this Grizzly Bear cover of Paul Simon’s “Graceland” several weeks ago from the gents over at IGIF. Here, in place of Simon’s mid-80s Soweto fetish, we have Daniel Rossen’s multi-tracked rendering that falls more in line with haunted Dixieland gothic than Manhattan world beat. Listening to this reminds me that while Grizzly Bear can wait, right now I’m ready for a new Department of Eagles LP.

  1. Don’t feel bad, Paul Simon is notorious for “nicking” songs. Just ask Los Lobos.

  2. Another Graceland cover of note: Tallest Man on Earth.

    Check it!

  3. love it, though not quite as much as their take on “mother and child reunion.”

  4. i think this is a great cover. not a big paul simon fan but i really liked the song.

  5. Nope. I don’t get Grizzly Bear, still. pleasant sounds are not always music, certainly not of Rock and Roll. its hipster muzak meh.

  6. [...] Drunkard – Grizzly Bear – Graceland: Indie rock group Grizzly Bear does Paul Simon. Wait, headline should read indie rock [...]
