"Low covers Toto"

You may recognize three of the four people in today's session as Retribution Gospel Choir, one of A.V. Undercover's earliest participants and bravest re-interpreters of cheesy '80s hits. This time, as Low--which in its current incarnation is all of Retribution Gospel plus singer/drummer Mimi Parker--they've decided to tackle "Africa," the 1982 smash hit by Toto with the, umm, incredibly distinctive lyrics. (Worst offender: "I know that I must do what's right / sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti.") They tried to blame me for daring them to try it, but I think you'll agree that Low takes "Africa" and brings something special to it. And if you haven't seen the original video, you owe it to yourself, if only to see a bunch of bad haircuts playing on top of a stack of books. Low's latest album is C'mon, and you should check it out.
