The answer to that question is a resounding “Yes!”  Sometimes a band wows you with a sneaky cover.  New York based band Howth do just that with their take on “I Will Always Love You.”  The song starts off like a track that could have been included on the new Fleet Foxes album.  The lyrics are vaguely familiar until the chorus hits.  Oh yeah, it’s Dolly Parton!   Grab this track, put it on a mix with The White Stripes’ “Jolene,” and you have the beginning of a killer “indie rock does country” collection!

  1. Makes me think of the song in a completely different way, the true mark of a great cover.
    Gonna check out some more from this band for sure.

  2. Wow…this is great stuff, Dr. Yates. It makes me want to look at the trees outside in an extra wistful way.
