Watch The Walkmen Cover R.E.M.

Well, this is a nice way to end things, huh? We’ve been all over the A.V. Club’s Undercover Series this summer, because it has been by and large really, surprisingly awesome. The final installment was posted online this morning, and it’s NYC’s very own The Walkmen covering R.E.M.’s unimpeachable “Driver 8,” which for some reason, likely having to do with the fact that it is pretty much impossible to ever sound too much like R.E.M., was the final song left on the original list of 25. They do a fine job, though. Not earth-shattering, not embarrassing.
