Tour mates Sylvan Esso and Flock of Dimes recorded covers for The A.V. Club’s Undercover series and are releasing them as a split 7″. Sylvan Esso covered Gillian Welch’s “Everything Is Free” which premiered earlier this week. The A.V. Club just shared Flock of Dimes’ cover of Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” backed by Nick and Amelia of Sylvan Esso. The 7″ is out November 27th via Partisan Records.
This session took place during the first week of a month-long tour where the trio rode together and returned home with a deeper respect and more meaningful friendship than they could have imagined.
