Ontario, Canada’s Tokyo Police Club are in the middle of quite the ambitious project: 10 covers songs, recorded in 10 (10-hour) sessions, with a new rendition hitting the Web each day over the course of 10 days. Aside from proving their obvious love of the number 10, the indie rock quartet have already proven a pretty impressive knack for the art of a reverent cover tune — with only a pair of tracks turned in so far. The best to date is a relatively faithful version of Moby’s “Southside,” a tune that topped the charts a decade ago when released with guest vocals by Gwen Stefani and an MTV-friendly music video hitting screens non-stop.
We’ll be posting a roundup of TPC’s full effort once it’s complete come next week, but until then, enjoy “Southside” (featuring M83 member Morgan Kibby) below:
