Polyphonic Spree Covers Neil Young's Classic "Heart of Gold"

Neil Young is getting older. His songs, however, are timeless, effortless gems, graceful in their scruff and nearly impossible to break down. When an artist covers a Neil Young song, it only makes that artist look better.

Such is the case with The Polyphonic Spree, who covered Young's "Heart of Gold" for The Onion's A.V. Club Undercover series. Clear and concise, the Spree manage to distill some 18 or so instruments (including voices) into a sucker-punch of a performance.
