I never thought my favorite oddball folksinger would ever cover my favorite guilty pleasure, but I guess dreams do come true. More surprisingly, it seems the respect between these two is mutual. Will Oldham (Bonnie “Prince” Billy) plays a police officer in R. Kelly’s infamous Trapped In The Closet videos.
Nothing says November like John Prine, and this cover proves it. After hearing his 80′s smooth rock stylings for Gayngs and “festival closing” hooks for Kayne, its nice to hear Justin Vernon getting back to his roots.
Ok, so this isn’t exactly new…but when it came on shuffle today at work I had to add it to today’s list. It must have been a sign from the Take Cover gods…and the last thing I want to do is upset the Take Cover gods.
