Skinny Love (Bon Iver Cover) – Silent Rider

June 3, 2013

I’ve been rather busy for awhile so I’m being lazy with this post. I heard this lovely cover of Bon Iver on Sunset in the Rearview and only now am getting the time to listen to more from Silent Rider. I’m only about a third of the way through their free album as of this posting, and enjoying every song. Since I haven’t had the time to select favorites from the album yet, I thought I’d hook you all with the same song that caught my interest. Silent Rider’s cover of “Skinny Love” sets the mood instantly with atmospheric and vaguely discordant synths that form an eerie backing to Bon Iver’s melody as slow, syncopated percussion gives the song casual momentum. Check it out!
