Hot Chip's Vampire Weekend
Oh boy, it’s a late entrant, but this gets my nomination for cover of the year. Hot Chip does Vampire Weekend’s “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa,” with vocals by Peter Gabriel.
Prediction: In two years, no one will listen to Vampire Weekend. But they will listen to this song. And they will be like, “Wait, that’s a cover?”
