Iron & Wine cover New Order on Jimmy Fallon

Posted May 20th, 2009 by Eric Greenwood · 2 Comments

Iron & Wine performed last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to promote its rarities collection Around the Well, which came out yesterday on Sub Pop. Sort of ignoring protocol, the perennially hirsute Mr. Beam opened with a new song not featured on the compilation entitled “Godless Brother in Love” but then bent slightly (it’s a web exclusive) to the promotional machine by playing a cover of New Order’s classic “Love Vigilantes”, which is indeed on the commercial release. Stripped of New Order’s idiosyncrasies, “Love Vigilantes” works well as a folk song. An ad precedes the music, as this is a Hulu clip. [via Stereogum]

    For the hulu-challenged (non-US) here’s Sam in Long Beach doing Love Vigilantes.
