[on repeat] Oh Land//Bloodbuzz Ohio

Danish singer-songwriter Oh Land (aka Nanna Øland Fabricius) recently dropped quite the impressive cover of The National’s “Bloodbuzz Ohio”.  Just as Mr Little Jeans was able to take Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs” and make it her own, Oh Land does just that.  The original’s guitar has been replaced with light synths, and along with some subtle electric beats and Nanna’s dreamy vocals, a solid cover is born.  In fact, if the original wasn’t already such a favorite of mine, I could see myself believing this to be it.  I’m in love with this track right now and it’s most definitely a keeper (I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned up on this year’s 31 Days of Good).

If you have yet to check out Oh Land’s self-titled LP, which was released earlier this year, or her debut LP Fauna, what exactly are you waiting for?!
