Countdown - The Elwins and Luke Lalonde


THE ELWINS & LUKE LALONDE - "Countdown" by Beyonce from Mitch Fillion (southernsouls.ca) on Vimeo.
Feels Like: Born Ruffians, The Dodos, Los Campesinos!

I love covers that can transform a song into something new and possibly even better. Check out this very cool remake of Beyonce's "Countdown".  The Elwins and Luke LaLonde of Born Ruffians put thier own individual spin on the song and out of that collaboration comes something in the vein of indy pop and completely original. I would like to add that the lead guitarist is rocking a 1970s power porn stache. If that doesn't peak your interest then.... that's probably OK too
