Damien Jurado and Richard Swift cover Kraftwerk, Chubby Checker and more on “Other People’s Songs” Vol. 1Posted: August 31st, 2010 by Stefania
Two weekends ago, Damien Jurado and Richard Swift got a 4 track recorder and a Coles 4038 ribbon microphone and decided to record nine of the best cover songs you’ll hear in a while.
The feel of the recording is so warm and every song sounds effortless. My personal favorite is their rendition of “If The Sun Stops Shinin’” by Chubby Checker (of “The Twist” fame).
You can stream and download (just click on tracklist) Other People’s Songs, Vol. 1 HERE.
Damien US tour dates, after the jump! And don’t forget, he and Swift will be touring the UK together. If they perform one of these covers… it would be just dynamite.
