Helvetia Cover *censored*

One of the best parts of seeing a Built to Spill show are the random covers they'll pull out. Some of my favorites over the past 20 years (20 years? Jesus...) have been the Peanuts theme and George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord." Apparently Jason Albertini has kept the covers bug for his other band, Helvetia. While we wait for their upcoming four song EP due in September, the band has released a cover song they're calling "You and I." While that's not the actual title, you'll recognize the song almost immediately. The band blocks out the name of the original band, but will say it's off an album called Let It Be. I assume they don't want to pay for a cover they're just throwing out there for free. Their cover starts as a slightly off tune, quiet kinda acoustic version, and it slowly evolves into a rambling mess at the end. And I mean that in the best way possible.

You can listen to Helvetia's mystery cover below. For more on the band, check out their website, and keep an eye out for Sun Chasers, due September 22nd.
