Watch Ryan Adams Cover Vampire Weekend, on His Webcam of Course

It seems like just yesterday Ryan Adams was recording a new album every day and feeding his blog with self-indulgent musings every minute, back before Mrs. Adams entered the picture. But with a new album due this year, he’s slowly getting back into the swing of things with the occasional self-recorded video popping up on his Facebook page. Now comes a cover of “Mansard Roof” where he looks like Rivers Cuomo but sounds gentle and sweet, noting, “I sung it imagining being on a beach made of diamonds with a darkened night sky full of twinkling sand.” Makes sense. For the record, he’s still a really good guitar player in case you were wondering. Watch here.
