At the onset of the summer, The Henry Clay People put out their second record, Somewhere on the Golden Coast, which has garnered comparisons to Pavement, The Replacements, and The Hold Steady — not bad company. They are taking their own style of 70s barrock on the road this October in a mostly headlining tour that will see them open a date or two for the Drive-By Truckers. If you think you have them figured out by now, I bet you couldn’t guess the band will be appearing on the October 5th episode of NBC’s Parenthood, called “Date Night.” Don’t get too excited, it’s probably going to be one of those 3-second intro shots of a bar after commercial, but hey, it’s national television. Good for them.
The Replacements have always been a band near and dear to my hear. Paul Westerberg is a true poet and writes some of the saddest songs known to man. This week indie Gods, Band of Horses, who just released their new record Infinite Arms (Brown Records/Fat Possum/Columbia), decided to try their hand at playing a cover of “Can’t Hardly Wait.” Yes this is one of the most well known Mats songs so I can only imagine the pressure was on. Band of Horses claims it was their first time playing the song, and boy did they nail it. Talk about having the ability to make a song even sadder sounding. The band played the song live on Columbus, Ohio’s CD101.1FM radio station.
Watch it below, or download it. As far as we know we’re the only one who has an MP3 of it right now. Sneaky, eh? Enjoy.
