An Acoustic Cover Of Outkast's 'Hey Ya' From Obadiah Parker

It's great when a very obscure indie band get exposure not for their own songs, but for covering a monstrously popular hit and making it sound the way we never imagined before. Have you ever thought of hearing Outkast's 'Hey Ya' in acoustic? With just an acoustic guitar, this three-piece band somehow managed to turn it into a pretty, Jack Johnson-esque song and still able to pack an amount of energy and fun from the original. Stripped-down, lo-fi yet effective. You can visit them at their myspace.
By the way, from now on, I will concentrate a little more on covers, especially the indie-band-remakes-pop-hit kind. You guys seem to dig them quite much.
