Indie Goes A Cappella….Again?

Its been less than a month since we were exposed to the college A cappella group, The Stereotypes, peforming Of Montreal’s ‘Wrait Pinned to the Mist (And other fun games).’ While looking for something today, I have come across this brilliant video of  another college A cappella group called The Carleton Singing Knights from Minnesota. They chose one of my favorite songs, which is ‘House Fire’ by Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. How could this be? When did this all start to happen? I’m not sure, but I love it.
What a brilliant twist on this song. The harmonies are nothing but astonishing. I’m almost at a loss for words.

Check out the band on their Myspace
They cover Death Cab for Cutie’s ‘Soul Meets Body on There’ (What?!)

When I got an email in my box today announcing Polyvinyl Record’s massive store sale, of course I immediatly went to the site. Posted on the front page I found the most interesting thing I have ever seen in my life.  The Washington University’s Male acapella group, The Stereotypes had decided to cover and make a video for Of Montreals ‘Wraith Pinned to the Mist’. Wow, is all I can say. They also add in a bit of ‘Gronlandic Edit’ and ‘Lysergic Bliss’ in there during the song. I have never thought of turning Of Montreal tunes into acapella, but damn it sounds so good.
