The Swell Season covers Neutral Milk Hotel

The Onion’s AV Club has had a series of musicians come in to cover other famous songs. This week is The Swell Season covering one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite records by one of my favorite long-defunct bands, “Two-Headed Boy” by Neutral Milk Hotel from In The Aeroplane Over The Sea. It’s a damned good cover, too. I have no idea who these guys are, but in this instance at least they have excellent taste.

In case you’ve been living in a cave for the last 15 years, here’s the original.

Pretty awesome, right?
