VOTD: Phosphorescent - ‘Ya Hey’ (live, Vampire Weekend cover)

Prepare yourselves for so SO much win encapsulated in five minutes and forty nine seconds. The heart wrenchingly dreamy Phosphorescent has covered up-tempo indie rock powerhouse Vampire Weekend’s “Ya Hey.” I never expected that the same guy who wrote the tear evoking “Song for Zula” would whip out a cover like this, but he did and it was brilliant. “Ya Hey” dominated alternative radio for months as a cheerful summer anthem and now we know it sounds just as on point as a stripped down, cozy track. I would kill to see Matthew Huock and Ezra Koenig on stage at the same time. Dear universe, please make this happen!
