After their breakout album, Odd Blood, we’ve all come to associate Yeasayer with lots of synths and other electronics. Songs like “O.N.E.” and “Ambling Alp” proved their love of ’80s and early ’90s sounds. So in some sense, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that they’d take on Seal‘s song “Crazy.” On Australia’s Triple J radio, they stripped down the song to nothing but vocals, acoustic guitar, tambourine, and a couple of drums.

It may not be a revolutionary cover, but beneath the simple-sounding arrangement lurks surprising complexity. It hearkens back to the All Hour Cymbals days of Yeasayer’s existence, and, as a result, makes you kind of wish they’d explore that area of their sound again. Check out the cover below. (via Some Kind of Awesome)
