Jon McKiel: The Lagniappe Sessions @ Aquarium Drunkard

Canadian singer-songwriter Jon McKiel recorded two covers for Aquarium Drunkard's The Lagniappe Sessions: Terry Jacks' Concrete Sea (MP3) and the Dirty Projectors' Swing Lo Magellan (MP3). About the latter:

My friend Vinny sent me this tune in a dm one day a few months ago and I became obsessed with it. I quickly checked but found no similar sounding song in the band’s discography. It could appear on John Wesley Harding—it’s production is stark, the playing has a disgusting groove and it’s panned just right. Lyrically it’s as poetic as anything I can think of.
