Xiu Xiu released a new album, FORGET, earlier this year via Polyvinyl. Now the band have taken part in A.V. Club’s Undercover series, in which bands pick a song to cover from a predetermined list. They chose ZZ Top’s “Sharp Dressed Man,” which was a hit for the band in 1983 and appeared on their Eliminator album. Xiu Xiu’s performance is definitely one of the more dynamic we’ve seen from the Undercover series. Watch it below, followed by the video for ZZ Top’s original. Also below is an interview with Xiu Xiu about why they chose to cover ZZ Top.

And don’t forget that the band are donating all their Bandcamp proceeds for the next four years to the ACLU.
