Kasey Anderson & The Honkies Announce Dates With Counting Crows
The Crows recently covered Kasey Anderson on their latest release, Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did on Our Summer Vacation) via Collective Sounds. They chose to cover Anderson's "Like Teenage Gravity," from his 2010 release Nowhere Nights (Red River Records).
Of the song, Counting Crows' front man Adam Duritz wrote in the album's liner notes: "Ryan Spaulding raved about Kasey Anderson so I bought all the records and I really dug them. I really found out how right Ryan was a few months later when Kasey came down to Austin last year to play Smoke & Sand, Ryan's Smashing Life (RSLblog.com) & Tyrannosaurus Record's 2011 SxSW showcase. His big lonely rock songs are addictive but he crushed at Smoke & Sand with an acoustic set. Maybe that's why I chose 'Like Teenage Gravity' to cover over songs like 'I Was A Photograph' or 'Exit Ghost.' I don't know. I love his recording. It has a sparse almost hymn-like simplicity."
