Does what it says on the tin.

And for those of you somehow not aware of the original:
Nice cover of a nice song . . .
Thank you, I really love this song.
Interesting and cool remix, though I was hoping it’d be someone singing the lyrics in an 80’s style, instead of just adding more reverb. I mean, I could totally see this being sung in a Flesh for Lulu or Pyschadelic Furs kinda style, you know?
Good, but hard to beat the original.
Pretty amazing. Thanks for sharing. Last year I saw Au Revoir Simone open up for Broken Bells then saw Mazzy Star a month later. Wouldn’t have thought Au Revoir Simone could pull it off but this is a great take on the song.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to watch the original, because the uploader on YouTube has decided not to make it “available in your country” (Australia, for the record). The digital fences are going up, I see.
Glad to know there’s fellow Sandoval fans out there in the writing world.
I need to catch up with Au Revoir Simone. I tracked them down because I loved the music at the end of a short film. The film is Family Reunion (Góðir Gestir) and also wonderful. http://www.no9productions.com/index-famre.html
