if i never touch you
Our friends over at Daytrotter recently released Sparrow House's (aka Jared Van Fleet of Voxtrot) SXSW Daytrotter Session. The session, which was recorded on a perfect rainy day at Big Orange, includes an unreleased song, as well as a new one from his highly-anticipated (by me) Television Snow EP, which should drop any day now. But the highlight for us is Jared's cover of Cap'n Jack's "If I Never Touch You." The original version appeared on Cap'n Jack's virtually unheard 1970-something LP, and it is without a doubt one of the saddest songs ever recorded. It's cool if you tear up a little, we won't tell anyone.
Cap'n Jack If I Never Touch You
Cap'n Jack's LP is called Aren't You Ashamed?. Let us know if you find a copy. Download the entire Sparrow House Daytrotter Session here. Take the time to read Sean's preface and Jared's words as well, they're wonderful.
