Recently I received the December newsletter from The Sumner Brothers (sign up on their website here) and for the last bit they have been coming with a new cover song each month. Well, to be honest they have been absolutely stellar. Some Cash, some Haggard and even some Waits. Well this December came a great track originally from Airon Dugas (or A.P. Dugas as he records under…I believe) called “Old Skin”. It was recorded essentially solo from Brian Sumner and it has floored me lately, it is that good. While I have been a fan of the Sumner Brothers for years, Dugas is new to me from the last month or so.
So, after telling you that the most recent cover song is that good, I am not posting it. I’m a bastard that way. Sign up for the newsletter and get it free – I ain’t stealing music from musicians…I’m a blogger! ;-) No seriously – both A.P. Dugas and The Sumners have been on serious repeat lately after hearing that cover song, so I thought I would throw a few tracks at ya to get you on board.
Bonus is the video for Carolina from A.P. Dugas that I found about a week or so ago via The Sumner Brothers Facebook page. Soo good.
So class, what are you listening to? That is right – The Sumners and Airon Dugas. Thank you.
p.s. If you haven’t heard the Sumner Brothers cover Townes Van Zandt’s “Colorado Girl” you are in for a treat. Visit HearYa who posted it a while back right here.
