Indie rock veteran Mike Kinsella is releasing an acoustic covers album later this year called Other People’s Songs under his Owen moniker. We’ve already heard his take on the Smoking Popes’ “Under The Blanket,” and now he’s shared his version of Against Me!’s “Borne On The FM Waves Of The Heart,” which Laura Jane Grace wrote with Tegan Quin’s voice in mind after hearing that she wanted to work with the band. It’s a highlight on 2007’s New Wave and Kinsella does it justice, keeping the affecting back-and-forth vocals and taking everything down a notch. It’s really pretty and you can listen below.
Other People’s Songs is out on 12/2 via Polyvinyl.
