When we saw Swervedriver at Coachella they played a very solid set in a tent that was barely 1/3 full. Lame. One way for Adam Franklin & Co. to gain new fans amongst a younger crowd is to cover a song by a band like the beloved Wolf Parade. Bingo: On a forthcoming 7,” Franklin takes on Boeckner-fronted Apologies To The Queen Mary rocker “Shine A Light” and Dan’s Handsome Furs are set to do a still-unannounced track by Swervedriver. It’ll be available digitally and as a limited edition “Shine A Light” 7″ on colored vinyl via White Whale. We’re told to expect the finished platter in “early summer,” though Franklin’s chilled, atmospheric, and haunted (but somehow tonally sunny) take’s already available via iTunes. Or, you can stream it at MySpace. Pick a good song, Dan and Alexi. The popular “Duel” would be appropriate.
