If you haven’t heard the Peter Bjorn and John song Young Folks you’ve been under a rock. Or at least somewhere far away from the radio, which is lucky for you because I’m well over it. However, I do like this cover. Kentucky-born New York performer and sound engineer Dawn Landes has recorded a version with a genuine bluegrass band from Austin and the results have been floating around the internet for the last few weeks. Don’t be scared by some intense banjo in the beginning though. [see also Feist takes the bus]
