Speedy Ortiz "Hanging Around" (The Cardigans cover)
In our recent review of Speedy Ortiz's album Foil Deer, we compared band to Pavement and Liz Phair. Now, however, the indie rock outfit have covered a different '90s band: the Cardigans.

Speedy Ortiz took on the band's creepy rock song "Hanging Around" from 1998's Gran Turismo. This cover has a slightly fuzzier, blearier arrangement than the original, although it's not too much of a departure.

Frontwoman Sadie Dupuis said in a statement about the Cardigans, "Their hits are pretty well known, and are all great, but I love 'Hanging Around' for its detached, spooky lyrics. This song could be about cognitive dissonance, or it could be about some invading body snatchers — maybe both? We stayed pretty true to the original on this one, 'cuz we think the original is so good."
