A.V. Undercover

Houndmouth covers Billy Bragg & Wilco

Clackin' that bat, gone with the wind

About This Episode

You may not have heard of Houndmouth yet, but the Louisville, Kentucky band will be all over the place this summer—from Bonnaroo to Lollapalooza to a club near you. Houndmouth's debut album From The Hills Below The City will be released in June on the legendary Rough Trade label. Oh, and did I mention that this is a special Undercover week? We're taking the week off from the regular list for a Seventh Inning Stretch (it's week seven!), and we've asked Houndmouth and Basia Bulat to cover baseball-related songs for us. (We intended to record them at a baseball stadium but we got rained out—true story!) Houndmouth dug deep and found "Joe DiMaggio Done It Again," from the collaborative Billy Bragg/Wilco album Mermaid Avenue Vol. II. That album, of course, put new music to old lyrics by Woody Guthrie. It's real purty. Enjoy.
