Video: Houndmouth – Joe DiMaggio Done It Again

This week The AV Club put their latest season of their always fantastic Undercover series on hold to offer up a couple of tunes about a topic near and dear to many of us around HT HQ – baseball. For this special off-shoot bands where allowed to independently pick the song of their choice relating to America’s pastime.

Singer-songwriter Basia Bulat went with the more obvious selection of Bruce Springsteen’s Glory Days, delivering a stunning rendition that would have you convinced it was originally recorded by Joni Mitchell if you didn’t know better. Folk-rock act Houndmouth, on the other hand, dug a bit deeper, choosing to take on the Woody Guthrie penned song Joe DiMaggio Done It Again from Billy Bragg & Wilco’s Mermaid Avenue Vol. II.

Originally sung by Jeff Tweedy on the album, the ode to Joltin’ Joe was recorded as a swinging upbeat bluegrass number. For their spin on it, Louisville-based band, who will release their full-length debut From The Hills Below The City on June 4, slowed the song way down, interpreting it as dusty country and gospel-infused version. Let’s check it out…
