Tunes we love: A.V. Undercover

Oct 5, 2011

This past year the website produced a series of videos entitled AV Undercover. 
This project is definitely among the ranks of other online music video series like Black Cab Sessions & LaBlogotheque Take Away Shows.
Viewers voted on different songs to make the cut, and then each week a different singer or band would choose a song to cover from the list of the top 25 songs.

Here's a little montage of all of the song choices from each week:

I enjoyed keeping up with the song choices each week, but my personal favorites are:

Smith Westerns cover Tom Petty's "American Girl"
Matt Nathanson covers Prince's "Little Red Corvette"
Iron & Wine covering George Michael's "One More Try"
(We got to see Mikey from Bon Iver cover this song when he played with Gayngs in Austin last year . . . nuts)

They also did a series in 2010 . . . so hopefully they will do it again in 2012!
One of the videos was The Swell Season covering Neutral Milk Hotel
(Side note: The lead singer of Neutral Milk Hotel, Jeff Mangum, is from Ruston!)
