We just want to prepare you: this is some sick shit. It’s really lovely how seamlessly Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s Portlandia phenomenon blends music and comedy of the indie persuasion. Whether this is more of a comedic or musical moment is up for debate; we just straight-up love it. Via Stereogum:
Last Friday night, Armisen covered the song again at the Berklee School Of Music with Sixpence None The Richer’s Leigh Nash and J Mascis on guitar. Mascis and Armisen have collaborated on many creative fronts, including Mascis’ guest appearances on Portlandia and SNL. Also worth noting is that J Mascis wrote the score for Laurie Collyer’s drama Sunlight Jr., which was released in theaters last week. Watch them play the TLC cover, and Dino Jr’s “Feel The Pain,” below.
