Fidelity Wars #35: The Books feat. José González – “Cello Song”

My internet problems are still present, but the music won’t be stopped! It marches through my veins like giant radioactive rubber pants! The pants command me. Do not ignore my veins!  </Invader Zim reference>

My pick for this week is a track off the charity compilation Dark Was The Night, in which the North American experimental electronica folk band The Books team up with less experimental Swedish-Argentinian singer-songwriter José González to cover Nick Drake’s “Cello Song”.

The Books feat. José González – “Cello Song”

I’m not sure if The Books really needed the help of José on this one, as they’ve done a perfectly fine solo performance of the song previously. All the same, it’s a wonderful take on a wonderful tune, relaxing, and it helped re-introduce me to the music of Nick Drake.
