This week it’s my pleasure to bring something a little different to the proverbial table. The track you can stream on the Scoundcloud player below comes off a new Volcom 7″ that features current Black Bananas and former Royal Trux vocalist Jennifer Herrema covering two Rolling Stones cuts. She does “Before They Make Me Run” on the A-side with Kurt Vile, and lo and behold, side B is “Sway,” featuring a duet with none other than Scott “Wino” Weinrich, who also contributes guitar.
“Sway” was the original B-side to “Wild Horses” and has a bluesy kind of groove. Herrema and Wino deliver a solid duet, neither really dominating the other, and if I’m not mistaken, I might even hear a little mellotron in there. Throw in some slide guitar and it’s not the most ripping thing in the world (though the solo more than qualifies), but like I said, it’s something different that Wino fans might dig. Hope so, anyway.
Volcom‘s selling the 7″ here as part of their vinyl club series, if you’d like further info about its limited edition and purple marbled-ness. Happy Wino Wednesday:
