Friday Mountain Goats Fix: Audrey Pic’s Nouvelle Vague “No Children”


For those who missed it, as I did, when Carl Wilson posted this video a few weeks ago: A cover of “No Children” by the Envelopes’ Audrey Pic, mashed up with Godard’s Breathless. Apparently commissioned as part of a senior thesis project at the Pacific Northwest College of Art—good looking out, Jaclyn Campanaro!—this is maybe the best Mountain Goats cover I’ve ever heard. (Although this comes close.) Since we’re doing this now.
