Good Cover Version: Oldermost does Graham Nash

Pulp gave the world the song "Bad Cover Version." But seeing as I'm a sonic optimist, I'm of the belief that there's more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

Don't mind me, y'all. I'm just sitting here swooning like crazy over this here dreamy piece of cover goodness from Oldermost. Taking on Graham Nash's majestic piece of self-reflection "I Used to Be A King," the Philadelphians tenderly update Nash's looking glass frankness, adding languid layers of their earnest folk ramble while themselves sounding like contemporaries of their cover subject.
