nouvelle vague

usually i'm not a big fan of 'cover albums'...the only bands that do covers that come to mind that i actually care anything for are catpower and anything yo la tengo covers.
but i recently ran across this strange bossanova group called nouvelle vague, with a cover album of songs that we all love...definitely check them out.
especially love the cover of 'making plans for nigel' by xtc, and 'too drunk to fuck' by the dead kennedys (and, of course, 'forest' by the cure, because that song just makes me want to be all teenage and pale and depressed and lie face down on the carpet in my bedroom...but no, it's bossanova!).
