Back in August, we heard British sensation Anna Calvi cover the Shirelles, Leonard Cohen, and Elvis as B-sides for various singles. Now she’s gone a little more modern on a ripping cover of TV on the Radio’s “Wolf Like Me.” Her fashionable rock swagger keeps the song classy until the end, when all hell breaks loose on one hell of a guitar solo.

If you want to watch the rocking in action, Domino Records also posted a beautifully-filmed live video from a show in Brussels. For not the first time, St. Vincent instantly comes to mind. Download the studio version and watch the live clip below. (via Stereogum)
