Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it! I actually did record vocals for it, but my good vocal mic is out of commission so they turned out like crap, haha.

Yes, it is the Ingrid Michelson version. It wasn't my intention to sound like her...but I did do her version because I thought it would suit my voice. I like constructive criticism though. Thanks for checking it out, regardless.

Thank you!


Your voice is absolutely lovely, btw. I'd love to hear you with a pop filter (just use a nylon stocking and some wire) over the mic and re-interpreting a song that hadn't already been re-interpreted. I think you could make something legitimately remarkable. :-)

Thanks for the compliment. I wish I could do a lot more as far as recording goes. I, however, have very limited and resources. I did the cover all in one take using the built in mic on my mac.

Yeah I know how stressful limited recording equipment is, for sure. It can drive you nuts. Seriously though, something as simple as wrapping a nylon stocking around a wire coat hanger you bent into a circle and placing that in front of the mic can make a world of difference. DIY is fun shit sometimes. Haha.

Fuck, Kyle's is really awesome. Only one I was too impressed by.

edit: scratch that, Can't Help Falling In Love is also beautiful.

my favorite I think is the cover of Crush...really neat version... for people looking for decent recording equipment, look into Presonus, they make some REALLY great low price high quality stuff,for most of the covers here something like their Audiobox 22vsl would have been sufficient recording. I like their stuff so much I actually opened an Audio Installation business to sell it. Far higher quality than M-Audio's stuff(which I can sell too) for a similar if not better price range.
http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/AudioBox22 with this and a semi decent condenser mic you'd be set for any acoustic stuff.

I submitted a cover for this, was it not good enough? haha, there's only 12 songs...

Shit, I am so sorry! I did it in a rush and knew I must've forgotten one. I am so sorry Reece. I'm gonna upload it now.

I downloaded a few of the covers... Minneapolis currently has 15 plays on my itunes... Great cover.


If you're a fan of That Dog, I've been working on a complete cover album to Retreat From the Sun...I'm really close to being finished. I'll post it to a bandcamp hopefully by June or so

Haha that's ok, I hadn't heard the others and figured maybe they were STELLAR or something and mine was just bunk, in which case don't bother :p
