Best Covers: Gordi “00000 Million”

Sophie Payten, the Australian singer and songwriter who records as Gordi,is Jagjaguwar labelmates with Bon Iver, and she was part of the all-star chorus that sang backup for Justin Vernon when he debuted “8 (circle)” on The Tonight Show earlier this year. So it just makes sense that she’s recorded her own version of “00000 Million,” a song from Bon Iver’s great new album 22, A Million. Payten’s version is almost entirely a cappella, but it doesn’t sound spare. She layers her own voice and runs it through a few filters so that it sounds otherworldly.
