Listen to Sylvan Esso Cover Gillian Welch



Single also features Flock of Dimes (w/S.E.) doing Crowded House…

It’s great running the Blurt shop while the editor is on the road. (Psst: don’t tell him I’ve been raiding the company’s wet bar in his absence. I’ve also been spinning Third Eye Blind nonstop, which is absolutely verboten around here, as most of you probably already know.) Well, I LOVE North Carolina’s Sylvan Esso, so it was a treat to grab the embed code for their new single featuring them covering Gillian Welch’s “Everything Is Free” for the A.V. Club, along with their pal’s Flock Of Dimes doing Crowded House classic “Don’t Dream It’s Over.” Check out the tunes, below.

Oh, and don’t recognize the name Flock of Dimes? That’s because it’s actually Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak, whom I also adore. Frankly, this version is better than the (admittedly great) cover of the same song by Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande. Not kidding.
