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.
