uploaded this lovely warehouse lit cover of John Prine's classic "Angel From Montgomery" yesterday. The Sunday morning cover features friends and fellow players The Once

When it comes to covers, I tend to appreciate most those that take the original song in their own direction and create something new. This collaborative cover is not that. Instead, it's virtuosity is derived from absolutely nailing to the wall the warmth and melancholy of the original, and infusing it with fellowship. The result is a grassy shade of lonely togetherness.
