Remember that one time that we here at BlindedBySound couldn't shut up about Gary Clark Jr.? Well, I believe The Lone Bellow might be the new GCJ....and the gushing continues now.

Josh already gave you the gift that is their Tiny Desk Concert and for that...well, you're welcome. But the gorgeous three part harmonies don't stop there folks. We've got the trio covering the John Prine classic "Angel From Montgomery" - a tune famously covered by Dave Matthews, Brandi Carlile, Old Crow Medicine Show, Susan Tedeschi, Ben Harper, and many more.

Aside from the fact that the Prine tune is a timeless classic - this version is incredible for many reasons. One is the fact that there are three fantastic vocalists in the band - so their rendition features Zach, Brian, and Kanene each taking a verse. This means each verse is unique, with each chorus filled with the band's signature three part harmonies. Then there's the fact that it's a live acousic version of the song. Not to mention that I'm just a sucker for a cover song.

This is a band to watch. And we here at BBS are obsessing stalking watching. Get the record, and if they're coming to your town on their upcoming tour...get a ticket. You're welcome.
