We usually like the Sun Sessions to be (a) filmed at our office (b) not released several days after the band being covered has played. But we made an exception for Kinch's cover of Britney Spears "Toxic," which we filmed Saturday at McDowell Mountain Music Festival. Frontman Andrew Junker did it all by his lonesome, with a little help holding the lyric sheet from guitarist Brian Coughlin. We thought about holding this back since it's not really a Sun Session in the purest sense, but it's too damned good not to share. Since we missed Britney, this is the closest thing we've got, but it's pretty cool nonetheless.
Catch the video after the jump.
