Another interesting cover has made its way from the minds and passions of Levi’s Pioneer Sessions in Passion Pit’s cover of a track originally authored by the favorite band of the groom in the wedding Andy and I are attending this weekend. How’s that for a terrible sentence? I have mixed feelings on Smashing Pumpkins in general. I greatly enjoy a large swath of their work, but don’t much care for its creators. I also like the original of this track, but the cover is a bit too saccharine for my tastes, and my usual toleration, nay, enjoyment, of Michael Angelakos’ vocals is completely absent. But I appreciate the effort and initiative once again from Levi’s.
