So about this time last year Bloc Party's album Silent Alarm was being released in the U.S. It's a pretty great record with many many fine songs. In the middle of last year they decided to release a remixed version of Silent Alarm with many many good tracks. Death From Above 1979 covered "Luno" to great success. Sadly, the band did not include the Mystery Jets' cover of the Bloc Party song "Pioneers." True the cover was put as the b-side on the Pioneers 7" but still.
Well now another band has gone and covered "Pioneers." They're called Tunng and I guess they're kinda folky, but they, like Mystery Jets, have dissected the song and made it their own.

Download it at Yeti Don't Dance. And the Mystery Jets version.
