IN Covers: Canid covers E.P. Hall's "Bow & Arrow"

Perhaps you find yourself on this rainy Indiana Friday wondering how deeply into an auditory cave you could bear to dive. Perhaps you're in search of a test. Perhaps you love reading blog posts written in the second person. Well you, person number two, have come to the right place, because not only do I compulsively resort to the second person, I've also got a freshly-dropped auditory cave in which you might spelunk to your heart's content. It arrives in the form of a new addition to our burgeoning catalog of IN Covers from Bloomington's noise and drone journeyman Colin Jenkins as Canid covering E.P. Hall's "Bow & Arrow." Listen below.

 

For more information on the IN Covers project itself and the mastermind behind the whole thing, Sharlene Birdsong, be sure to check Roberto Campos' feature from back in May. We'll set all of those considerations briefly aside to consider the track itself. "Bow & Arrow" comes from 2006's The Edge The Middle, and as with much of E.P. Hall's folk-leaning work, it's structured in large part around vocalist E.P.'s soft voice hanging out front and center, nudging the listener along. It's minimal, droning, and small, and it's close enough that you can hear its breath.

 

 

Canid's cover (whose work last appeared on this here blog on the occasion of a sampler from Terre Haute's outre NO! Records), then, works in large part by pulling back, burying. Both share the backbone of synthetic long tones, but E.P. Hall sets off east with them where Canid's driving west, ending up with an almost photo negative effect comparing the original with the cover. Everything about E.P. Hall's version that was warm and close is cool and distant on Canid's cover, and it's indicative of the ways that interpretation can crack open the potential of chords and a melody.

 

Stay tuned for future installments of this series featuring the likes of She Does is Magic and Popular Ego!
