Something (Cover) – Austin CriswellMarch 20, 2012
Beautiful. Simply gorgeous. These are not terms I usually use to describe covers of the Beatles. I usually use words like horrible. Painful. Just plain wrong. But in this case, the cover is simply beautiful. Austin Criswell‘s light and sweet voice takes just enough time on the notes of “Something” to establish the beauty of the tone before moving forward. Accompanied only by a ukulele, his voice does most of the work while his uke provides background. It’s light and airy and a little echo-y. I spotted this over on Pigeons and Planes and have been enjoying all the songs on his YouTube Channel.
