Mr Little Jeans - The Suburbs (Arcade Fire Cover)

There are a lot of dangerous assumptions you could make about Mr. Little Jeans. First off, you might assume that Mr. Little Jeans is actually a man. If you learn a little bit more about Monica Birkenes you might begin to assume that she's is simply Norway's answer to Lykke Li. That second assumption is definitely going to be a bit harder to shake, but gorgeous, inventive covers like the one below should go a long way. Mr Little Jean throws the homespun feel of the original out the window, instead launching the song into space. The surrounding synths flutter between seductive and emotionless, transitioning the original's subtle anxiousness into full blown paranoia.
