Ezra Furman-Unbelievers (Vampire Weekend Cover)

I’ve never been a fan of Ezra Koenig. He may be my least favorite of the Ezra’s. Fortunately Ezra Furman is one that I could listen to all day every day. His choice of covers is always interesting (last month when I saw him play he ended the encore with a solo version of Brian Wilson’s “Love and Mercy”). This raw take on Vampire Weekend’s “Unbelievers” is stripped of the pretentiousness that plagues Koenig’s entire discography.
