Jenn Wasner is the A.V. Undercover MVP, having graced us with more covers with her band Wye Oak than any other artist: They’ve covered The Kinks, Danzig, Kate Bush, and Brenda Lee. This time around, we caught Wasner on tour under her solo moniker, Flock Of Dimes. (She’s working on a full-length under that name, and there are a couple of singles available already.) Since the two members of Sylvan Esso invited her to help out on their magnificent cover of Gillian Welch’s “Everything Is Free,” she asked them to do the same for her version of Crowded House’s 1986 hit “Don’t Dream It’s Over.” All three were sharing a tour bus on the Sylvan Esso/Flock Of Dimes tour, and they’re good pals, so it all made sense.
