Hear Sharon Van Etten and Shearwater Cover "Stop Dragging My Heart Around"


Here at Flavorpill, we were, um, delighted to feature on the Onion yesterday, but for all that we’ve always adored the paper’s scalpel-sharp satire, we’ve also long been fans of its more serious cousin, the AV Club. So we’re happy to see that their AV Undercover series — wherein they compile a list of 25 songs and get bands to cover them — is back for a third season. The series has been responsible for some excellent covers over the last couple of years — some of which, come to think of it, could well have featured on our list of surprisingly awesome covers — and kicks off this week with Sharon Van Etten and Shearwater doing a rather fine version of the Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks duet “Stop Dragging My Heart Around.” Check it out here.
