Worlds Be Colliding: Team Perfect cover Nimrod

Okay so this actually came out in 2007, and I discovered it myself back in July, but recent events have made it a perfect time to recommend this to you (plus I only just found the download link again). Team Perfect is Florence Welch (Florence and the Machine), and Dev Hynes (aka Lightspeed Champion aka Blood Orange), two of the coolest people in UK indie, and this album is short mix of the two of them covering Green Day's 1997 album "Nimrod", with all tracks recorded in one take on Dev's laptop.
As you may know, Green Day were the first band I ever loved, and I still believe they can write the perfect pop song. I love this because it ties the geeky high-schooler and the geeky twenty-year old in me together in just 8 or so low-fi acoustic songs. It's cool to a Green Day fan as they cover the less-known album tracks (Nimrod admittedly had a lot of filler, which Dev and Flo choose to highlight) and re-interpret them as folk-punk with a female voice, and it's cool also to hear a rawer version of Florence's usually choir-leader-in-the-mountains voice. Most of all, I love this because you can hear the fun the two are clearly having recording this, and in the end isn't that what it's all about?

Download it here! 
(Also feel free to use the album cover I made for it. Happy Birthday Manu!)
