Steven Page and the Art of Time Ensemble cover The Weakerthans’ Virtute the Cat Explains her Departure, a sequel song to A Plea From a Cat Named Virtute, and bring out its heart breaking ending.

The Dave Matthews Band is not a band that is often covered (to my knowledge). A lot of their songs are too intricate or too much like a jam for a cover band.

Tokyo Police Club set themselves a challenge: record 10 covers in 10 days. I love their cover of the Miley Cyrus “classic” Party in the USA. It is 100% Tokyo Police Club, and 100% awesome.
