Tune of the Day #1 – Dave Rawlings Machine

I’m hopefully going to keep this series alive as and when I can. So today, although I’ve flagged this song before, this double cover of Conor Oberst’s ‘Method Acting’ and Neil Young’s ‘Cortez The Killer’, blended into one, is stunning. It’s lifted from Dave Rawlings‘ debut album, which has just been released. Rawlings is best known as Gillian Welch’s musical partner, while he also featured on Ryan Adams’ debut ‘Heartbreaker’ and Bright Eyes’ ‘Cassadaga’. A stunning musician, he’s contributed to a host of other records too. This is really worth a listen, and I look forward to hearing the album.
