Earlier this summer Aquarium Drunkard posted the 10th installment of their "Lagniappe Sessions," where in some of their favorite artists record exclusive covers. Los Angeles-based White Fence, aka Tim Presley, did a few great covers (Nina Simone, The Strange Boys, etc...) but he really nailed it with his blissed-out 70's version of the Gin Blossoms song "Allison Road." Tim says the harmony and chord changes reminded him of the Grateful Dead and the Byrds, and I could not agree more. A great song to put on this weekend as the summer comes to an end.
