Friday Cover Up - Sweet Lights, Its Daniel Johnson And His Monkey!
Well, this is a special way to see out the week. We have spoken many times about the sweet autumnal nostalgia that is Sweet Lights - but never in a million years did I expect to have four Beatles covers ('A Day In The Life', Cry Baby Cry', 'For No One' and 'Too Many People'), from the man recorded backstage with none other than the inimitable Daniel Johnston! Of course it should be known that Sweet Lights is Daniel Halperin, who's one of the Capitol Years, Johnston's backing band - nevertheless, these videos are a beautiful snapshot. Not much else needs to be said. Its very ad hoc and lo-fi - thus making it something else altogether to behold. Enjoy, and have a stellar weekend ok!
