Jónsi covers "Time to Pretend"
Continuing with my MGMT influenced day then...
Check out a simply stunning version of Time to Pretend from MGMT's debut Oracular Spectacular by Jónsi, the frontman of Icelandic band Sigur Ros. It was recorded for the BBC's ever entertaining Live Lounge show.
He plays the song on piano, stripping it of its pop psychedelica. His gorgeous vocal thrown over the chords gives the song an entirely new feel. Something really special here.
It is available for stream on Jónsi's official site: http://jonsi.com/news/jonsi-covers-mgmt
He also played his new single Go Do taken from forthcoming album Go which is due for release at the end of May.
