The hope of a great cover song, so that it has its own movement and color. David Bazan has proven himself an understated interpreter with a distinct bent towards desperate intensity, from his early covers of Radiohead (“Let Down”) and Nirvana (“Something in the Way”) to more recent songs, like Protomartyr’s “The Devil in His Youth” and The Long Winters’ “The Commander Thinks Aloud.” He likes to take on forebears and contemporaries, artists with whom his own music carries a conversation. This is why David Bazan’s version of “Thread” by Now, Now feels something like a renewal.

The cover appears on volume eight of Kevin Devine’s Devinyl Splits series, which has featured sides from Worriers, Tigers Jaw, Owen and Craig Finn. This particular pairing sees Devine and Bazan — both with at least a couple decades’ experience making music  tackling one song each by the relatively younger Now, Now (Devine covers “Prehistoric”). With the sparkling pop of Saved still fresh in our ears (and perfect for summer playlists), this revisit of material from 2012’s Threads . Bazan was the lead singer and creative force behind the band Pedro the Lion and was the lead singer of Headphones.
