Fruit Bats cover Hall & Oates

One of Daryl Hall and John Oates' songs gets a loving cover from Seattle's Fruit Bats.

About This Episode

Fruit Bats started as a solo project for Eric D. Johnson, who'd been palling around with the guys from Califone in Chicago. Ten years later, they're fully fledged purveyors of gorgeous, melancholy pop--check out last year's The Ruminant Band for proof. (You might also recognize Johnson as the second guitarist in the current Shins lineup.) Here, Fruit Bats lovingly embrace Hall & Oates' 1983 basketball-referencing hit single "One On One."
