Frank Ocean‘s Channel Orange is so chock-full of amazing songs that its easy to overlook a track like “Lost” especially coming directly after the magnificently epic “Pyramids”. The lively, upbeat tempo and invigorating melody was not lost on Britt Daniel though and last night with indie supergroup Divine Fits he debuted a fantastic cover of the track in Pawtucket, RI. The song turns out to be a perfect fit for Daniel’s raw vocals and jagged guitar playing (if you didn’t know better, you’d think it was a Spoon song), making it one interesting covers I’ve heard this year.
