Over the weekend, Kevin Barnes of Of Montreal uploaded a pretty trippy, layered video of himself covering the Beach Boys’ Friends single “Little Bird,” and you can check it out now. Even without a full band, it’s a gorgeous arrangement, Barnes’ falsetto is nothing if not impressive, and his lilting, sharp guitar riffs are beautifully, tenderly nostalgic. Check it out.
