Something for the weekend: Bedouine, Waxahatchee, and Hurray for the Riff Raff “Thirteen” – Listen

Well that’s it from us for this week dear reader. We leave you with a rather fantastic little cover of Big Star’s ‘Thirteen’ from the wonderful collaboration of Bedouine’s Azniv Korkejian, Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield, and Hurray for the Riff Raff’s Alynda Segarra, something of a standard for country-leaning indie artists. Korkejian explained that the idea for the cover came about when the three artists were on tour together back in 2017. “We threw the idea around of doing a song together but weren’t sure what,” she said. “I was backstage in Columbia, Missouri when I realized it was the anniversary of Big Star’s ’93 reunion show that had also taken place in Columbia. I was fiddling around with the song in my dressing room when Katie and Alynda walked in. Suddenly I remembered there were 3 verses to split up. We played it as an homage that night and every night after.” Have a good one.
