Colin Meloy of the Decemberists Plans An EP Of Sam Cooke Covers


This cover of Sam Cooke’s “Bring It On Home To Me” by Spoon’s Britt Daniel, originally released on a Portland-centric compilation, is almost a year old at this point, but Mr. Matos returned it it to my attention in light of the alarming news that adenoidal thespian Colin Meloy of the Decemberists is planning an EP of Sam Cooke covers. It’s so good it’s kinda like Daniel put Meloy over his bony knee and spanked him for in advance for the very idea. (A friend also notes it fits quite well on a playlist following the new ?uestlove-produced Al Green join that leaked a few weeks back.) [Jonk Music]
