Artists of JAN2010 – Who Covers Daniel Johnston?


The year 2010 is shaping up to be the year of Daniel Johnston.  Sure, it’s only January and I’ll probably have 20 other “favs” before the year ends, but DJ will be a tough act to follow.

THE LATE GREAT DANIEL JOHNSTON: DISCOVERED COVERED has all the indie greats (a la 2004) performing DJ songs; TV on the Radio, Bright Eyes, Beck, The Flaming Lips, the late Vic Chestnutt, Death Cab for Cutie, Tom Waits, the list goes on.  But for my money, Clem Snide has the best song. Their rendition of “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down on Your Grievance,” is absolutely spot on.  Also be sure to check out M.Ward’s “Story of an Artist” and EELS “Living Life.”
