Dan Griffin - Yulia (Wolf Parade Cover)

Dan Griffin – Yulia (Wolf Parade Cover)

Wednesdays are made for cover songs. At least this is what I’ve heard, or rather, this is the premise I’m concocting to suit the needs of this post. But have a listen to Dan Griffin’s rather solemn, acoustic take on Wolf Parade’s tragic Cosmonaut opus Yulia and you’ll agree it deserved a posting. Griffin, also known as a member of current CDN rock radio faves Arkells, released a rather lovely 5 song solo EP late last year, which you can, and should, grab pour gratis via his website. If you like what you hear, and are in Ontario, you can catch Griffin at a number of dates around the province later this month.

These Electric Lives - Wicked Game

These Electric Lives – Wicked Game

Sunday nights are made for cover songs! Well this one is I guess, as I’m sharing this Chris Isaak cover from T.O. electronic-rock outfit These Electric Lives. I’ve been a fan of TEL’s for a while, but I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about them taking on such a mellow, well-known jam. But they put their own spin on it, as one does when doing a cover, and the results are pretty enjoyable.
