The A.V. Club
June 13, 2011 AT 8:00 PM
We knew when we asked Parts & Labor to choose a song for A.V. Undercover that the result would likely sound pretty different from the original, no matter what the experimental NYC rock band chose to do. We were excited that they accepted the challenge of Kanye West's "Runaway," a modern classic we figured most bands would see as too great a challenge. Singer B.J. Warshaw told us that they skipped the verses that they "couldn't reasonably sing honestly"--which left them mostly with choruses. (They're right: The line about dick photos would sound silly coming from almost anybody but Kanye.) In any case, we hope you'll enjoy this partly manic, partly chill interpretation. Parts & Labor's latest album is Constant Future, and it's a corker.
