Here is a good cover of a good song by a good group of guys in a good band. Have a good weekend and I will see you at Chick Fil A, I will be the fancy lady in the fancy dress getting my fill of delicious Santorum sauce. It's free there you know? All you can suck down.
During their current trip to Australia, The Shins stopped by the Triple J studio to perform for their covers program called Like A Version , where bands perform one of their own songs along with a cover of their choice. The cover they chose to perform was The Magnetic Fields ' "Andrew In Drag", one of the highlights from their latest LP Love at the Bottom of the Sea , which dropped earlier this year via Merge/Domino. Check out their performance above (via Fake Walls ).
The Shins siguen de gira presentando su último disco de estudio, Port of Morrow . En su parada por Australia, el grupo acudió como invitado al programa Like a Version de la radio local Triple J y, aparte de interpretar una de sus recientes nuevas canciones, decidieron lanzarse con una versión acústica del "Andrew in Drag" de Magnetic Fields.

The Shins stopped by the Like A Version studios to play a few songs off of the new Port Of Morrow album. While there they decided to perform a "tragic yet hilarious" rendition of The Magnetic Fields' " Andrew In Drag " that came out sounding nothing short of magnificent. It truly is just another case of one good band covering another that makes it near impossible to not enjoy the end result. [...]
James Mercer and what he is now calling The Shins stopped by the Australian series Like A Version . Mercer performed a cover tune with "Andrew In Drag", originally by The Magnetic Fields . That song is kind of twisted, about a friend falling in love with his friend when he sees him dressed as a woman. Very odd choice, James. They also perform "It's Only Life" off Port Of Morrow . "It's Only Life" "Andrew [...]

The Shins are longtime Magnetic Fields fans (they covered "Strange Powers" ages ago), but their fandom has manifested itself this time as a great cover of the Mag Fields' newest single "Andrew in Drag." [via CoS]
A tragicômica história de um homem que se apaixona pelo melhor amigo Andrew, quando este estava vestido de mulher, é o tema do recente single do The Magnetic Fields , Andrew in Drag , faixa escolhida por James Mercer para uma reedição acústica na passagem do The Shins pelo programa australiano de covers Triple J's Like a Version. Antes da performance, Mercer até mesmo relatou suas experiências com uma peruca loira na divulgação do último álbum do The Shins , o excelente Port of Morrow (que resenhamos aqui [...]
This has been making the internet rounds this morning, so we're gonna jump on the bandwagon and post it, too! It's a stripped-down version of the Shins (James Mercer, Richard Swift, and Joe Plummer) covering the Magnetic Fields' "Andrew in Drag" for Australia's Triple J and their Like a Version series of covers. This is a tender, acoustic take on the Magnetic Fields song, which has echoes of "Lola" in the lovelorn tale of one man falling in love... with his fellow man... in drag. Dig how songwriter Stephin Merritt tastefully rhymes "drag" with "shag" in the final [...]
Hay momentos en los que veo a The Shins en el estudio, y pienso que ya estan demasiado grandes para hacer esto... Pero por otro lado, eso es lo que ha hecho que la experiencia que han ganado con el tiempo haga de su presencia en el escenario algo bastante notable en comparacion a otros actos que estan en el juego actualmente. Pero bueno, en su mas reciente visita a la estacion de radio Triple J; The Shins presento un cover del mas reciente sencillo de Magnetic Fields titulado "Andrew In Drag", mismo que pueden checar [...]
