Sometimes, if we really like a band, we’ll ask them to stick around and play an extra song for us after they nail their cover. (Sometimes bands just do another song, and we’re okay with that, too.) Trashcan Sinatras were nice enough to do something old, something new, and something borrowed when they stopped by our studio. Something new was their own song “Best Day On Earth,” from this year’s Wild Pendulum. Something borrowed was their excellently mellow version of Wye Oak’s “Holy Holy,” which aired recently. And now for something old: Here’s a lovely version of the band’s own “Weightlifting,” the title track to their 2004 album. (If you’re looking for something blue, all three of those songs sorta fit the bill.) “But where is this week’s cover from the regular list?!?” you’re angrily shouting. It’ll run on Thursday, and it’s going to be awesome. In the meantime, enjoy this.
