Britt Daniel: "Let Me Roll It!!"

Years ago, far away from hit records and sold out shows, Britt Daniel was just a dude home-recording tape cassettes and being interviewed by his little brother. Even way back then, Daniel was putting cover songs on his records (okay, tapes), and one of our favorites is "Let Me Roll It!!".

The tune, from the Drake Tungsten-alias tape Clocking Out Is For Suckers, is a far more fuzzed out and lo-fi take on Paul McCartney's original. True to Daniel's other covers, it takes some sonic liberties. He manages to make the song completely his own. And, as always seems to be the case with Spoon, we, like, totally heart it to the max.

Check it out below, compare and contrast, enjoy.
