The Lumineers “This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody) [Talking Heads cover]”

lumineers, grammysThe Civil Wars recently released their cover of Smashing Pumpkins‘ “Disarm,” a nod to the fact that they acknowledge the last 30 years of music. Although The Lumineers choose an older song to cover, the track feels like it carries more weight. The reason being it is a cover of godfathers of indie rock, Talking Heads and one of their most loved songs, “This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody).” For their part, The Lumineers strip the song down but still do it fairly faithfully to the original. The arrangement shows a real understanding of the original track while presenting who the Lumineers really are.
