When asked by indie site The A.V Club to pick and cover a song from an ever-dwindling list of rock classics as part of their ‘A.V Undercover’ series, flower-power four-piece Of Montreal mulled it over and plumped for ‘Fell In Love With A Girl’, the track that initially kicked things off for some little-known band called The White Stripes.
Usually a band specializing in mind-expanding psych-rock, the Of Montreal boys demonstrated their understanding of the grass-roots rudiments of rock when they delivered a surprisingly straight-laced version of the song. Good for them.
Check out the two vids below and spot the difference between Of Montreal’s rendition and The White Stripes’ original, if you can.
