I’ve been meaning to post this one for a while now, and luckily for those of you who haven’t seen this yet, I’ve finally gotten around to it.

The video is a cover version of MGMT’s indie anthem “Kids” done by a folkish, countryish band called “Ooks of Hazzard”.  Gone is the piercing electronica and the sonic effects, replaced with a whole bunch of ukuleles and an accordion.  The style might be a drastic departure from the original song, but it’s a testament to the MGMT’s songwriting and melody that the cover retains the charm and epic quality of the original.  So sit back, click play, and let this little piece of awesomeness bring a smile to your face.
