Song of the Day posts one cool cover every morning. Catch up on past installments here.

Pitchfork named the Microphones’ The Glow Pt. 2 the best album of 2001. This means it beat the Strokes (Is This It, #15), the White Stripes (White Blood Cells, #8), and Radiohead (Amnesiac, #6). Pretty good for an album that sounds like took all of twenty bucks to make.

The album contained a song called “I Felt Your Size.” Two tracks later, it had “I Felt Your Shape.” New Jersey trio the Delfields have concocted a dreamy cover of the latter. The echo-chamber vocals sound like a dying record player underwater; the subtle programming is more LCD Soundsystem getting sleepy. All in all, a nice combo.
