Sun Araw – “Thrasher” (Neil Young)

Sun Araw has released a twisted, psyched-out cover of Neil Young’s “Thrasher,” a cut off the 1979 Rust Never Sleeps LP. Apparently, at last year’s SXSW, Sun Araw watched Ralph White play a set with his banjo, kalimba, and fiddle and was so impressed that he asked White to collaborate with him on a split album. The result was a series of 10+ minute jammers, including Sun Araw’s Neil cover and White’s take on the song “Lord Franklin’s Ballad” (from about the year 1852). Both tracks are featured on the upcoming Sun Araw/Ralph White split 12″, out July 9 on Monofonous Press. Check out “Thrasher” below.
