Deer Tick “Constructive Summer (Hold Steady cover)”

deer-tick-constructive-summer-hold-steady-coverDeer Tick and the Hold Steady are currently on tour together. For record store day, the bands are releasing a 7″ where they cover each other. Deer Tick takes on “Constructive Summer,” the opening track from 2008’s Stay Positive. The difference are immediately apparent. Gone is the track’s iconic opening piano line, replaced by noisy guitars. Gone are the gang vocals on the chorus. Its a stripped down affair but what else would you expect from Deer Tick?
