The Very Best turned “Ambling Alp” on its head, like they did to other contemporary classics like M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” and “Boyz”, and also Vampire Weekend’s “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa” on their critically acclaimed introductory mixtape. I still don’t know what Esau Mwamwaya is saying, but it sounds joyous and vibrant like most of the Very Best’s music.

Interesting thought: after The Very Best overdubbed M.I.A. and Vampire Weekend on their mixtape, they both appeared on The Very Best’s album. Could this mean we will be listen to a proper Yeasayer-The Very Best collaboration soon? I sure hope so. Download/stream The Very Best’s take on “Ambling Alp” below, and remember, you can download the original here for free.
