Twin Shadow - "Perfect Day" (Lou Reed cover)


And lo, the Lou Reed covers abounded - in the wake of the legend's death, musicians we love are coming out of the woodwork to pay their respects (in cover form) to one of the reasons why rock and roll music is the way it is today. Check out Twin Shadow's George Lewis Jr.'s version, complete with minimalist video, of devotional slow-jam "Perfect Day," from Reed's 1972 record Transformer. It's a lovely, moody cover - we love Lewis's addition of the background organ. Check it out.
