‘Yulia (Wolf Parade cover)’- Dan Griffin

There’s something about Dan Griffin’s dreamily anthemic cover of ‘Yulia’ by Wolf Parade that’s been striking a chord the last few weeks, though I’ve yet to totally put my finger on it (aside from the obvious fact that it’s a really gorgeous take). It was one of the few songs I added to my iPod before leaving that I got around to listening to while out West, and it was love at first listen. I still love it just as much now, 100 or so listens later and with a whole mess of memories attached to it.

Dan Griffin is a Canadian songwriter who writes pretty great songs in his own right- if you head on over to his site he’s actually giving away an album full of his work for free. Go get it. Enjoy.

 

(Thanks to Wake the Deaf, whose wonderful The Covers Mix: Vol 3 provided an introduction to this gem.)

    Oh my… It’s almost painful to listen to this. It pulls at me so much and I suddenly feel this very strong but vague longing… I love it.
