If you know me, you know I feel strongly about Sleigh Bells. Strongly in the sense that I like them. I like them a lot. I doodle Alexis’ name on my hand during client meetings. It’s actually a problem. I know. So you can see where I think Sleigh Bells covering Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable” is rad. I didn’t even give it a second thought. I didn’t even care that they strayed from their signature riot rhythms and guitar rift shreds. I only listened to it once. It’s just rad. That.is.all.

This cover is kind of nuts. The Big Pink, in preparation of their sophomore album, Future This (which was released yesterday), stopped by the BBC live lounge to perform some stripped down cuts. I’ve already heard all types of covers of Gotye’s virally-popular song, “Somebody That I Used To Know,” but the spin that this English electro-duo put on the song is really off the wall. Give it a listen.

The dream pop duo provides us with thee song to obligatorily post listen to right now to ease into 2012.

The warmth of your love
is like the warmth of the sun
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

don’t let go of my hand
now darkness has gone
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

and I won’t forget
the way you held me up when I was down
and I won’t forget the way you said,
“Darling I love you”
You gave me faith to go on

Now we’re there and we’ve only just begun
This will be our year
took a long time to come

The warmth of your smile
smile for me, little one
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

You don’t have to worry
all your worried days are gone
this will be our year
took a long time to come

and I won’t forget
the way you held me up when I was down
and I won’t forget the way you said,
“Darling I love you”
You gave me faith to go on

Now we’re there and we’ve only just begun
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

Yeah we only just begun
yeah this will be our year
took a long time to come
