Have you checked out this compilation of covers of songs by Merge Records artists? There's a whole lotta Superchunk getting covered in there, which isn't a bad thing. The St. Vincent/The National cover of Crooked Fingers' "Sleep All Summer," Apples in Stereo's cover of Neutral Milk Hotel's "King of Carrot Flowers pt 3," and Bill Callahan's "Santa Maria" are just SOME of my favorites. It's pretty fantastic.
Sleep All Summer - St. Vincent And The National
King Of Carrot Flowers Pt. 3 - The Apples In Stereo
