I was at a friend’s house in Reykjavik a while back, hanging out and listening to music, when Hares on the Mountain, sung by Shirley Collins in 1964, came on his Spotify. (He has the most exquisite taste in music.)
I remember sitting bolt up and shouting, ‘WHO’S THIS?!’ I knew by the second verse that Cave Mouth would have to do a cover. And we finally have done. Meghan sent me two versions of the track, and because it was impossible to decide which I preferred best, I thought it best we upload both because why the hell not? To listen, simply click on the cover art below.
I’ve also snuck in some of my other favourite covers into this post and the one that inspired me in the first place.
