The Civil Wars // Sour Times >>>

So, Im kind of freaking out just a little bit over here, b/c I just found out that The Civil Wars covered Sour Times by Portishead.  Dummy is my favorite Portishead album.  I listened to this album as I fell asleep for about an entire year in high school.  I have so many stronggggg memories attached to this band.  And now, for one of my favorite bands of this generation to cover them.... oh my.  They brought new meaning, and a new spark to this song, that already evoked so much emotion.  Classically and beautifully shot by the amazing photographer Allister Ann.  Mmmmmmm.....

  1. I am dying over this. It's like 1996 me and 2012 me just collided.

  2. Dummy was my favorite too!! I haven't listened to that album in years, I need to dust it off!

  3. this is amazing. i just listened to it while my boys were sitting with me, when it finished my 2 year old said, "nini, i want more." i guess he liked it :)


  4. I love everything from The Civil Wars. With clear and emotional voices like theirs, and a simple guitar for instrumentaion they pulled this off. Not many can do that. Good one Laura.

  5. Yessss! Thank you for sharing this.
