Laura Stevenson, “Jesus Etc.”

Laura Stevenson
“Jesus Etc.”
All God’s Money, A Tribute to Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (out 07.10 on Better Yet)

I’m not a huge Wilco guy and rarely write about covers, but Laura Stevenson’s stripped back take on one of Jeff Tweedy’s best ever songs is just too gorgeous not to write about. Over descending acoustic guitars, Stevenson lays down a wonderful pedal steel line which elevates the original’s simple, yet potent melody and touching lyrics. Fuck, this is pretty.
