Carolina Covers: American Aquarium takes on Mount Moriah

Posted by on Wed, Nov 28, 2012 at 1:52 PM

It's been about 10 months since we recorded this song with B.J. Barham of American Aquarium. Over that time, I've received sporadic text messages from Barham, on tour in different spots across the country, asking, "When are you putting that cover out?" With the year coming to a close, and after recording nearly 30 Simple Music Video Series session, it seems time to inaugurate a new video series, Carolina Covers.

Barham's decision to cover Mount Moriah seemed surprising. I had expected a Whiskeytown or Backsliders cover. "It was my favorite record of 2011," he explained. "Heather McEntire is one of my favorite songwriters and voices in the Triangle. That record was in heavy rotation in the van that year and continues to be."

In the weeks to come, we will be posting more interesting covers tunes. Until then, here is B.J. Barham of American Aquarium performing Mount Moriah's "Lament." American Aquarium plays the Local 506 Thursday, Nov. 29, along with The Mike Roy Show. Tickets are $8 for a 9 p.m. start.

I wonder whether Ry Cooder minds having his image "borrowed".
