An unexpected cover can be a real delight for music fans, and as a regular Slicing Up Eyeballs reader points out, this one’s really out-of-the-blue: Nickel Creek’s Chris Thile and singer-songwriter Sarah Jarosz performing The Chameleons’ “Seriocity” last weekend on “Live From Here,” the Thile-hosted rebrand of public radio mainstay “A Prairie Home Companion.”

Check out the performance below — which is not as bluegrassy as one might fear — and hear the original recording, an album cut off Mark Burgess and Co.’s 1986 album Strange Times.
