This year, Illinois indie label Polyvinyl turns 20 years old, and to celebrate, the venerated imprint will release a covers compilation on November 25, titled Polyvinyl Plays Polyvinyl, that features 20 bands from the Polyvinyl roster covering 20 songs from the Polyvinyl catalog. Some of the selections include Beach Slang covering Japandroids (naturally), The Dodos covering American Football, Deerhoof covering Xiu Xiu (also, naturally), Of Montreal doing Jacco Gardner, Braid covering Alvvays and Mates of State taking on Of Montreal. One of the tracks from the compilation, Beach Slang’s cover of Japandroids’ “Younger Us,” which premiered via Pitchfork, can be streamed below.
