It’s been a treat to be involved in finally bringing this collection of covers of songs by Michael Hurley a.k.a Snock into the world.
Dubliner Brendan Foreman first attempted the release over a decade ago, then the project was shelved for reasons beyond his control. After some conversations with Hurley, we rebooted the notion, refreshed the tracklisting, and here she is: a collection of some of the folk legend’s finest tunes, recorded by people they mean something to.
The release features recordings by Yo La Tengo, Cat Power, Cass McCombs, Calexico, and more.
