Watch Kevin Devine perform an acoustic cover of mewithoutYou's "Cardiff Giant" here.

Didn't expect this song to translate acoustically so well. Wish the quality of video was better, but definitely a great cover.

Great cover! Favorite song on the new album!

Never really got into mewithoutYou but I do have to say the song (at least the way that KevDev did it) was pretty good.

It's actually not terribly different than the original. The song relies a lot on the vocal melody, so I'd definitely encourage you to check out the mwY version.

Hopefully he gets back into a habit of doing one of these every couple weeks. Loved this one though!

Love it!

We need a Kevin Devine album of covers

Zummy 08/25/12 09:43 PM

I agree with you. However don't forget he did cover Nirvana's Nevermind. But I do want to reiterate that he should cover other songs and make an album of that.
