The Last Bison Covers M83's "Midnight City"

While working on a review of the debut album by folk band The Last Bison (which you can check out at Life Is Awesome), I serendipitously stumbled upon a video that has all of my favorite things- great musicians, a live setting, and an unexpected but fantastic cover.  I love a good cover, but especially so if its done by an unexpected source or band of a completely different genre, as is the case with this video. The Last Bison is an inherently traditional folk band.  "Midnight City" is a song by M83, an electro-pop outfit.  I can't think of a more opposite paring. Which is probably why this works.
