A.V. Undercover

Basia Bulat covers Bruce Springsteen

In the blink of a young girl's eye.

About This Episode

This week we're taking a break from the regular Undercover list to offer up the ol' Seventh Inning Stretch—baseball-related cover songs, one by Houndmouth and this one by Basia Bulat. Perhaps you'll remember Bulat from the old Undercover room, where she covered Ted Leo's "Where Have All The Rude Boys Gone?" Here, she tackled Bruce Springsteen's classic "Glory Days" with the help of an instrument you don't see every day called the pianoette, a.k.a. hammered harp. Her voice and the sound of the harp bring a new dimension to what's really a pretty sad, cynical song. (And beautiful, don't forget beautiful.)
