Robert Forster Covered Vampire Weekend’s “Walcott”?
I don’t know how it’s possible that this happened over a year ago and I only found out about it last week, but alas: In August of 2010, Robert Forster, formerly of the mighty Go-Betweens, released a cover of Vampire Weekend’s rousing “Walcott,” from their 2008 debut. It’s loose and sprightly and beautifully arranged, just like you’d assume. Now, I’ll ask again, will someone please work on some Go-Betweens vinyl reissues, please?
