Sufjan Steven’s new album The Age of Adz just dropped Tuesday, but already we have the first cover of one of its songs. And not just a cover song – a full video! Cue speech about the Internet moving at the speed of blog or whatever.

Los Angeles indie-disco band Jump Clubb tackled the album’s opening track, “Futile Devices.” Stevens’ song is all delicate guitar and delicate-r vocals about sleeping and crocheting and such. Jump Clubb adds twitchy drum machine and sticky synth for a four-on-the-floor pounder that makes the lo-fi vocals seem all the more restrained. This certainly won’t be the last Age of Adz cover, but it sets the bar pretty high.
