Toro y Moi – Slough (Ricky Gervais Cover)


It’s been nearly ten years since the British version of The Office aired, but Ricky Gervais’s David Brent is still on track to live fast and die old. In May, Gervais-as-Brent began teaching guitar lessons on YouTube, a series that produced the single “Slough,” an ode to the post-industrial wasteland where he was born. Toro Y Moi recently released his chillwave version of the song with the note, “Dear Ricky, Hope you like this cover.” It won’t be the first time an American has covered a Gervais original. Stream it below.
