I haven’t been able to get enough of the Panda Bear cover of ‘Boneless’ from Germany’s The Notwist. These guys have been making music for nearly 20 years. They started as a hardcore punk band in the 90s and have slowly evolved into a fusion of indie pop and electronica. Their latest album, The Devil You + Me is a good album that gets better for me with every spin. They have a Radiohead meets Belle & Sebastian kind of vibe that feels really nice on my headphones.
If you’re in San Francisco, be sure to catch their lush, electro-fuzz sound tonight at Bimbo’s.

Just to clarify for other readers, while you say “this Panda Bear cover of ‘Boneless'”, you have the audio to the original Notwist version of the song.
I do indeed. Thanks for the catch.
J, you missed their show at Bimbo’s. It was great as you said. It was interesting to see them experiment with Wii sticks during their show. Never seen that before.
totally liked finding your article. Good work!
