A cover of Radiohead's H&D on resonator guitar in open G, for the minor/major challenge. I originally intended this to be a shitkicking country stomper but it turned into something quite different. [more inside]
I've always had a soft spot for this Postal Service song, so here's an acoustic cover featuring resonator guitar, pump organ, and ten copies of me. Lighters out for the last chorus, please.
It was 1978. I was 13. And I bought my first album, The Motors, because I loved this song more than life itself. [more inside]
Popgasmic cover of the Carpenters' sappy-but-intriguingly-odd tune for the Carpenter's Coverfight which went live today. [more inside]
Supertramp's classic, covered for the 'uncool' challenge. Featuring resonator guitar in Open G, pump organ, polka accordion and Ayn Rand. [more inside]
My love/hate song is a cover of Delbert McClinton's country/gospel classic (actually written by Frankie Miller & Jerry Lynn Williams) accompanied by the pump organ. [more inside]
I got to really hate this mofo over the last couple of weeks. So I had no choice but to record it. [more inside]
Yet another cover of the Cohen standard, but at least I've got an excuse this time. [more inside]
Woke up this morning with a sore throat and my voice about an octave lower than usual so I figured it was time to record a cover of Roger Miller's despicable novelty hit that was #1 on the country charts the day I was born. Despicable because it's a song written from the perspective of a complete cunt. So I brought some self loathing to the table, along with the sore throat and my complete inability to play blues guitar.
Cover of the Ewan McColl classic, at the original speed for once. So I know covering a classic like this is pretty dumb -- how you gonna compete with Johnny Cash, Peggy Seeger and Roberta Flack? But I was really curious about something I read, so I wanted to try an experiment. [more inside]
