Indieriffic cover

Damien Rice came out with the song Volcano in February of 2002, (don't get your hopes up too high the rest of the album isn't quite as good as this song) around the time that I personally mark as the start of the folk singer revival we have (The Head and the Heart, The Decemberists, Mumford and Son's, The Lumineers, Group Love, Bon Iver ect.) anyhow Bears Of Manitou decided to post this cover on twitter (which is arguably the first good use of twitter since it's inception) Hat tip ElectricMustache

Damien Rice original on Youtube






As a bonus, I also found this live version of The Lumineers - Ho Hey on the tubes so I threw that one in as a freebie.

  2. I dunno, I liked the rest of Volcano as well... maybe that's because it was part of the soundtrack of my high school days though.

  3. Damien Rice is one of those artists that I hate for being so likeable...a bit like Coldplay...
    Formulaic, middle of the road, stodge....but damn! some of it is good. Maybe I'm hitting middle age early.

  7. This is right up my alley. Also, sad to hear that Damien's album isn't very good, since I really liked the song.
