Published Aug 28, 2015In 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."
