A.V. Undercover: Summer Break

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. covers "Summer Babe" by Pavement on the Throop Troop's deck

The high speed band slows down "Summer Babe."

About This Episode

Michigan’s Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. took Pavement’s “Summer Babe”—from the unstoppable Slanted And Enchanted—and removed much of its indie-angst, leaving behind a pretty little summer ditty. That was perfect for the sunny day that greeted us on the porch of some A.V. Club readers that we’re collectively calling the Throop Troop (against their wishes—the apartment is on Throop Street). Dale’s latest is the mellow, ingratiating It’s A Corporate World.
