VIDEO: "Disarm" (cover) - The Civil Wars

Song:  "Disarm"
Original Artist:  Smashing Pumpkins
Cover Artist:  The Civil Wars

I wasn't going to post again tonight until I came across The Civil Wars' cover of my favorite Smashing Pumpkins song, "Disarm."  The song is hauntingly beautiful in its original form, and I've heard a few covers of "Disarm" (including by the aforementioned Ryan Star, which was brilliant) that evoke the same emotion as the original.  The Civil Wars, with their incredible harmonies, re-invented the song in the stunning display seen and heard above.  Take a listen and check out their new album, Barton Hollow, available now.  I already have a feeling this may be the best album purchase I make all year.
