new wave présente la nouvelle vague

Nouvelle Vague didn't invent cover versions, you know. So this time, instead of reinterpreting for themselves, Nouvelle Vague has compiled their favourite covers performed by all the best artists of the new wave scene and put them all onto Nouvelle Vague Presents: New Wave. Included are all the greats: Gary Numan, Visage, Devo, and even Telex for posterity.

Here's two of the best from the compilation, they're even mixed!

Comateens - Summer In The City (The Lovin' Spoonful cover)
Visage - In The Year 2525 (Zager and Evans cover)

The weird thing is that version of the Comateens "summer in the city" is the wrong speed. I have a re-release of their first album, and the song is much faster and peppier, and is much better overall than this version.
