Ukulele may be the current unexpectedly-buzzworthy instrument these days, but we’ve already got our sights on the next one: the glockenspiel. We heard last year how far it could go towards a great folk-pop cover with Thao + Mirah’s “Love Is a Battlefield” and Alyson Greenfield’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” and now we present Exhibit C.

Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle” was originally all suburban angst and power chords, but Brooklyn indie-folk trio Town Hall pare it back to acoustic guitar, shakers, piano, and, oh yes, a little glock. It’s twee and adorable and super-catchy. Watch it below.
