The gang at The AV Club are well into the new round of their Undercover series, in which bands drop in on the site’s Chicago offices and pick a song off a predetermined list to cover live in a very small room. This week’s installment finds indie buzz band Surfer Blood plowing through the Pixies classic “Gigantic”  — with The Girls At Dawn’s Sarah Baldwin doing the Kim Deal thing.

Earlier we brought you a clip of Rocky Votolato and the members of Matt Pond PA doing a stripped-down take on The Human League’s 1981 synthpop classic “Don’t You Want Me.” Still on the AV Club’s list of songs to be covered in the coming months: Gary Numan’s “Cars,” The Clash’s “Janie Jones” and Sugar’s “If I Can’t Change Your Mind.”
