At some point this winter I was sitting in my studio, pining for summer when the line 'summer is ready when you are' started looping in my head.
I decided to cover The Breeders song Saints as a sort of personal therapeutic exercise, 'live off the floor', if you will. The snow was swirling outside and I was riding out the time warp we're all currently living in.
I had no intention of releasing this. But with Bandcamp announcing all their proceeds going to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund today (Friday June 18), and with National Indigineous Peoples Day on June 21, I decided I would, and any money I raised for this cover song will go to the "Indian Residential Schools Survivors Society" here in Canada.
You can find out more about this organization and also donate directly here: https://www.irsss.ca/donate.
And if you purchase this cover song here on Bandcamp, I will donate the funds directly myself.
Keep safe, everyone. And I hope we can see each other out there in real life soon.
And, of course, the magnificent Breeders version:
