11.14.10: The best comment I read regarding Mini Mansions' Daytrotter session was this:
Hell yeah! That Heart of Glass cover is the T-I-Ts.
This assessment is beyond accurate. Their rendition of the Blondie classic was an unpredictable interpretation of the song, feigning seriousness but evading novelty. For that reason alone, you should check out their set.
You can find the session here.
