Phosphorescent are no stranger to covering someone else's songs, and Leonard Cohen is no stranger to being covered. Fitting that this pair come together so well on this wondrous version of "Hey That's No Way To Say Goodbye," from Phosphorescent's (UK only?) live EP Ghost Lights. While Cohen's discography is farmed far too often—although I'd be okay if Matthew Houck and company released To Lenny, sort of like this—it's difficult to find any flaw in this.
It's just so perfect.
