When she moved back to Los Angeles, Kirsten Opstad created and shared new recordings of covers, original songs and live performances once a week for a year. Here are the covers.
released October 16, 2015
Thank you to Ashley & Danny Lampson Opstad for use of their garage as a recording studio; Ellie Marks & Matt Sanderson for use of the upright in their living room; HIMPS for recording Case of You; Steve Subrizi, Brook Pridemore & The Sneaky Mister for their blessing; and to all the artists I've covered over the course of this project, whose music helped me remember who I am.
I love Lovecraft in Brooklyn, and this version captures the energy of the Mountain Goats in concert as well as any recording I've heard. My absolute favorite, but the live version of See America Right is a close second. Bangers, the both of 'em. theoysterking
