Covers You Must Hear

For this weeks post, I thought I would upload some covers you might not have heard before. These are song being covered by some of my favorite indie folk artists. Enjoy!

Starting it off right is Fleet Foxes frontman, Robin Pecknold covering Joanna Newsome’s “On a Good Day.” He does a brilliant job covering Joanna’s shortest song on her new album.  The Fleet Foxes are supposedly going on tour sometime this year with Joanna Newsome. Hopefully soon someone will upload a video of them playing this song together on their tour.

With all the hype that Lady Gaga has been getting lately, I have no choice but to post this. It’s really not as much of a struggle to post this as I’m making it sound like. It’s actually a very good cover that I’ve listened to numerous times now. It’s cool, definitely a different take on Lady Gaga’s hit, “Poker Face than I expected it to be.” Give it a listen:

Orba Squara-Poker Face
Folk Covers: Lady Gaga.

This has to be my favorite cover out of all of these. I’m a huge Ray LaMontagne fan and have been for quite some time. The energy and emotion that he pours into this song and all of this other works is undeniable. Below is Ray LaMontagne covering Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy”, which was a pretty big hit a few years back.

More covers to come, I promise.
