Cover lovers: Listen to Kevin Morby and Waxahatchee cover two tracks by Jason Molina

Listen to Kevin Morby and Waxahatchee cover two tracks by Jason Molina

They’ve taken on ‘Farewell Transmission’ and ‘The Dark Don’t Hide It’.

Back in October, Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield and Kevin Morby teamed up for a cover of The Velvet Underground’s ‘After Hours’.

Now the pair are back with a duo of new cover versions, this time taking on two tracks by Jason Molina. They’ve released their own versions of ‘Farewell Transmission’ and ‘The Dark Don’t Hide It’, with proceeds from the single going towards MusiCares.

As reported by Stereogum, Kevin said in a statement: “My love for Jason Molina began only a few years ago. I had overlooked him for years, too overwhelmed by his many monikers and sprawling catalogue. Then on a European tour in 2016 our driver put on Magnolia Electric Company and my mind was blown — and so began my obsession with the man and his music. A few months after hearing him I was on tour with Waxahatchee where Katie and I bonded over our mutual love for Molina, and we got the idea to record two of our favorite Songs: Ohia songs — which is what you have here today”.
